7.00pm – 8.30pm
When it comes to China, the voices of female journalists and authors are rarely part of the conversation about the country’s dramatic moves to become the dominant global power. Caught between tradition and ambition, China’s millennial generation is facing the difficult task of navigating the country’s authoritarian politics whilst making the most of the opportunities afforded by its hyper-modern technology and economic boom. Join authors Joanna Chiu (China Unbound) and Karoline Kan (Under Red Skies) for a revealing conversation about navigating their way as female journalists in a country mostly seen through the eyes of male Westerners. Offering both local and global perspectives on China, Joanna and Karoline will discuss the human consequences of its dramatic moves to become the dominant power and the challenges of reporting from the frontlines of its influence.
