LRCCS Lecture | History, Law, and Censorship in Digital China

Glenn Tiffert's talk strikes a cautionary note about the risks of our deepening digital dependence. Combining both traditional close reading and computational tools, his talk documents and analyzes the omission of hundreds of articles from leading Chinese online academic journal databases, offering a case study on how the digital turn has enabled China to quietly export its domestic censorship regime abroad, with Orwellian ramifications for how scholars around the globe comprehend its past, present, and future.
