About The Chinese Association for History of Journalism
CAHJC is the only national academic association for journalism and communication in China. Its position is equivalent to that of the National Communication Association (NCA) in the United States. The Association consists of twenty-two sections that focus on specific scholarly areas, including journalism, communication, new media, advertising, visual communication, media economy, public opinion, media history, and so on. The Association has hosted many domestic and international conferences in the past, and has well-established ties to the many university departments in China that study relevant areas.
