Chinese Media and Social Transition

This lecture is organized by CEASG partner the Groninger Confucius Institute.

Chinese media have undertaken dramatic changes in the past three decades, especially since media convergence in the past 10 years. These changes come to the reality along with China’s transitions in economic, social and political systems. Various stakeholders have played different roles in the process. This lecture will shed light on these interactions between Chinese media and China’s transition as well as their output for today and future.
