Please join the Freeman Chair for an exciting presentation by Georgia State University's Maria Repnikova, who will share with us the ways in which the Chinese party-state has adapted to the latest media technology environment and has changed not only the content of its message but the means by which it reaches its audiences. Professor Repnikova will put these developments in larger context and share illustrative examples from the Chinese media. Kaiser Kuo, a veteran of China’s media and pop culture, will then offer his insights and offer some ideas for further discussion. Freeman Chair Christopher K. Johnson will moderate the event.

The China Reality Check Series presents perspectives from academia, industry, and government in order to promote a sustained dialogue on critical and insufficiently understood issues related to China's reemergence as a global power.
