CIRC is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together scholars, analysts, industry leaders, journalists and legal practitioners from around the world to examine the impact of the Internet on Chinese society, including its social, cultural, political and economic aspects, as well as how China is changing the Internet. Founded in 2003, the eleventh meeting of the Chinese Internet Research Conference (CIRC) will be held in Oxford, hosted and co-organized by the Oxford Internet Institute, the Programme of Comparative Media Law and Policy, and the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford in collaboration with the Steering Committee of the CIRC, the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism at USC, the Center for Global Communications Studies (CGCS) at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, the Global Communication Research Institute (GCRI) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Singapore Internet Research Centre at Nanyang Technological University.
CIRC11 will begin with a dinner at Balliol College on 14 June 2013, which follows the ICA Pre-Conference on ‘China and the New Internet World’. This conference will be organized by the OII, PCMLP and RISJ, in collaboration with an organizing committee, which will include representatives of CIRC and our academic partners. CIRC11 will continue on Saturday, 15 June with academic panels and presentations from 9am to 5pm, followed by a closing session.
While individuals may register to attend CIRC11 whether or not they are able to attend the ICA Pre-Conference on the 14th (and vice versa), the conferences are designed to flow seamlessly together providing a broad range of current research on the Chinese Internet and drawing prominent researchers to this these consecutive events.
