Tune into a multi-dimensional discussion on the digital media landscape in the face of strongman leaders in power player countries like China, Russia, India, and the U.S. with frontline experts, Emily Parker (Now I Know Who My Comrades Are: Voices from the Internet Underground), David Folkenflik (NPR), and Noopur Raval (UCI Informatics), moderated by Jeffrey Wasserstrom (UCI Chancellor’s Professor of History).
Because the 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party is scheduled for the same week as our “Finding Solutions” conference, a number of China-based participants were forced to withdraw from the conference. We have postponed “Finding Solutions” until April 6, 2018. The focus of the event is still on the work of individuals, companies, and NGOs to address some of China’s pressing challenges. We apologize for any inconvenience this postponement causes. We hope you will be able to join this important discussion on April 6.
