From Propaganda to Channeling

With the advent of radio, television, and other broadcast media, authoritarian governments acquired the ability to reach large, captive audiences. The rise of digital media has fragmented audiences and disrupted the ability of governments to reach large audiences through broadcast channels. This talk shows how the Chinese government is moving beyond propaganda and other forms of persuasive communications to a new, digital strategy of “information channeling.”

Jennifer Pan is an associate professor of Communication, and an associate professor, by courtesy, of Political Science and Sociology at Stanford University. Her research resides at the intersection of political communication and authoritarian politics, showing how authoritarian governments try to control society, how the public responds, and when and why each is successful.
