29.09.2023 BCCN / Stiftung Asienhaus: China´s Critical Voices

Dear BCCN-Subscribers, dear students, dear colleagues,


The Berlin Contemporary China Network (BCCN) and the Stiftung Asienhaus cordially invite you to a discussion on "China's Critical Voices" - with inputs from Andrew Methven and Zoe Qian, founders of the online platform Slow Chinese, as well as from Daniel Fuchs (HU Berlin/BCCN).


The experts from Slow Chinese offer insights about the usage of the Chinese language, idioms, and historical references. In their weekly podcast, they speak about linguistic ambiguities in Chinese media and online platforms. Afterward, Dr. Daniel Fuchs will illuminate the nature of social protest in China and how protesters appropriate official discourse and state rhetoric to express criticism.
