Making the Paper Come Alive: Newspaper Reading Groups, the People’s Daily, and Socialist News Cultures in the People’s Republic of China, 1949-1976

Donald's dissertation explores how Chinese propaganda cultures, in tandem with global media systems, sought to leverage emotion through entertainment in order to convince audiences of news legitimacy. Through archival work in the People’s Republic of China, Australia, and London, he seeks to explain the mechanisms which have historically shaped global news cultures.
