Researching the Chinese Internet: New insights, approaches and methodologies
The Digital China research project has since its start in 2013 organised a series of conferences, workshops, and lectures on different topics. At these events leading international scholars in the field and research group's members have presented their research (see our blog).
At this one day conference we have invited speakers from different disciplines, including political science, anthropology, and media and communication, who will share their research and offer insights into different approaches and methodologies while researching the Chinese Internet.
