Strongman Leaders and Digital Media
What role does digital media play? A buffer against corruption? A platform for causes? An arena for discourse? A tool for propaganda?
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).
Please join the U.S.-China Institute and PEN America for the West Coast launch of the PEN America report on social media in China, Forbidden Feeds. We will discuss the report and Chinese social media more generally.
