Options: Potential for UROP Funding
I’m working on two separate projects: 1. China as a rising power and how it sees and discusses its rise on blogs, in newspapers and on Weibo–this is important because China is very sensitive to Western discussions of its rise and is therefore creating its own discourse as a response 2. why the Chinese peasant guerrillas during the civil war stayed loyal to Mao Zedong.
I’m looking for someone who is fluent in reading and speaking Chinese. Most of the research is internet-based and will involve reading online newspapers and micro-blogs.
