Research overview

My research interests are in the intersection of social media and contemporary Chinese politics. I am also interested in the Chinese traditional thought-Daoism, and its relations to the concept of governmentality formulated by French philosopher Foucault. In my thesis, I focus on how the Chinese government and Chinese citizens build relations with each other on social media platforms, especially on Weibo and WeChat, and in turn how different designs of social media platforms affect the relationships between them. 

 

我主要关注社交媒体与当代中国政治,以及道家思想与福柯的治理理论。我的论文将研究中国政府与中国公民如何在社交媒体上建立关系,以及不同社交媒体对其关系的影响。
