Archives closing post-1949 materials?

Dear all: 

I have received numerous reports via various channels regarding a number of archives denying access to post-1949 materials. I have updated the PRC History Resources wiki to reflect these:

I also added updated information regarding several other archives. We all know that archival access can be tricky in China, but recent changes are particularly distressing, with no end in sight.

Confessions Made in China


Dear all,

This is my new article on how media swallows, and helps disseminate (sometimes unwittingly), the worst kind of Chinese state propaganda: the TV confessions spectacles, coerced and produced under torture: 

Fiskesjö, Magnus. "Confessions Made in China." Made in China 3.1 (January-March 2018), p. 18-22; 108-109 (list of references). http://www.chinoiresie.info/made-in-china-quarterly/
