  • Carleton Connects: The Internet with "Chinese Characteristics": Looking through the Cultural Lens
Carleton Connects: Shaohua Guo

This program took place on Friday, May 13, 2016

This project seeks to expand the current understanding of the particular function performed by the Internet in China, which straddles a global capitalist economy and socialist legacies. Through the application of methodologies from the fields of media and cultural studies, this project examines the cultural dimension of Internet use in everyday life. It addresses how culture has been re-appropriated and redefined in China’s digital era, and how technical features and sociopolitical conditions accordingly impinge on the function of culture.
