CU on the Weekend: Chinese and American Views on the Media's Role
Start Date: 4/22/2017Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 4/22/2017End Time: 3:00 PM
Event Description:
The media’s role as a social institution has long been a pressing issue for Chinese and American scholars, politicians, journalists and others. In this lecture, Timothy Weston will focus on the complex history of Sino-American discourse related to media and society. Beginning in the early 20th century, China and the United States sparred over the media’s role and, in fact, served as a foil for each other regarding media attitudes and practices. However, as the Internet, social media and other media technologies contributed to globalization, this has complicated a traditionally confrontational discourse between the two countries over the appropriate role of the press in society.

This lecture is part of the CU on the Weekend series, which features some of CU Boulder's most dynamic faculty. The classroom opens at 12:30 p.m. Arriving early is recommended, since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance registration is not required, and reservations will not be accepted.
