How Chinese Netizens Use the Internet

Wednesday, October 7, 4:30-5:30pm PDT / 7:30-8:30pm EDT via Zoom

The stereotype of the Chinese Internet is that it functions as a "Great Firewall," intended to keep unauthorized information out. This one-sided view of information suppression overlooks the creative and dynamic ways that Chinese netizens navigate online platforms. In this webinar, two specialists will explore how netizens create content, react to government information, modify their own search behaviors, and actively shape Internet culture in China today. The webinar is free and open to the public.

Speakers include:
• Shaohua Guo, Carleton College
• Charles Chang, Duke Kunshan University
