How my blog changed my life

Speaker:  Zhou Shuguang (aka. Zola) (blogger, citizen reporter in the PRC)
Date and time:  Monday 25 March, 17.15-19.00
Venue:  Lipsius 002

Language:  Chinese

Information: Zhou Shuguang (aka. Zola) reported local news stories on his blog, with a focus on stories that were not reported in state media. Less than a year after starting the blog, he stopped publication out of concern for his personal safety. In this China Seminar, Zola will talk about his experience as a blogger and citizen reporter, and the problems he faced when “doing journalism outside the system.” More information about Zhou Shuguang’s activities in this article.

He is considered one of China’s two citizen journalists, who both feature in the documentary “High Tech, Low Life”. The documentary is being screened in Den Haag at the Movies that Matter Festival: please visit the website for more information. Zhou Shuguang is visiting the Netherlands to attend the festival as a guest of Movies that Matters and Amnesty International.
