External event. Internet and Politics in China: Taking stock and moving forward


Co-organized by the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication, Asian Dynamics Initiative, and ThinkChina, University of Copenhagen

9 May, 11:00 – 16:00

Location: South Campus, University of Copenhagen, Karen Blixens Vej 8, Room 27.1.47, 2300, Copenhagen, Denmark

This conference aims to critically reflect on the current discussion on internet and politics in Greater China. What have we learned from existing scholarship in the field? What are, or would be, emerging research topics and themes to study the internet and politics in contemporary China? How can we consolidate the status quo and move the field forward beyond, for instance, the case of China and contribute to a broader theoretical discussion? Speakers come from different disciplines, including political science, economics, sociology, and communication, and discuss and debate their up-to-date research and thoughts on the issue. We are also planning a special issue in an international peer-reviewed journal as the outcome of this conference.
