Event Title

China and the Pitfalls of Neoliberal Globalization: A Communication Perspective

Streaming Media

Description

A grand narrative about China’s economic ascendency in the era of neoliberal globalization has gone hand in hand with a widespread critique against the authoritarianism of the Chinese state, especially its repressive media control regime. What are linkages here? This lecture examines the crucial role of communication in establishing the symbiotic dependence between China’s export-led growth and Western consumer capitalism and explores the profound contradictions of China’s market authoritarian developmental path through its rapidly expanding communication system.

About the Lecturer: Dr. Yuezhi Zhao, Professor and Canada Research Chair in the Political Economy of Global Communication at the School of Communication, Simon Fraser University, Canada
