Biography

Dr Ng grew up on a diet of mass consumption and media culture. That experience means he has a hard time trying to choose among watching television, listening to popular music, reading comic books, strolling in shopping malls and doing sociology as his favourite vocation in life. He makes a compromise and decides to specialise in the sociology of mass media and popular culture.
