China Ink: The Changing Face of Chinese Journalism

Oct 23 2008 12:00 am

The World Policy Institute, Open Society Institute, and China Institute cordially invite you to:

China Ink: The Changing Face of Chinese Journalism
A book discussion with Judy Polumbaum
moderated by Aryeh Neier
Thursday, October 23, 2008
6:00 p.m.
Open Society Institute
400 W. 59th Street, 3rd Floor
New York, NY
Refreshments will be served.
China Ink: The Changing Face of Chinese Journalism explores individual and societal changes in contemporary China through the compelling personal accounts of young Chinese reporters and editors. Co-authors Judy Polumbaum and Xiong Lei conducted extended and frank conversations with journalists from a range of news outlets, and the results reveal diversity, passion, humor, and optimism that belie the stereotype of Chinese news workers as cogs in a rigidly controlled machine. Neither dissidents nor paragons but rather people working day in and day out within China's existing and evolving media, these individuals open new windows to understanding Chinese journalism and intellectual life.
Judy Polumbaum is a former newspaper reporter and currently professor of journalism and mass communication at The University of Iowa in Iowa City.
Aryeh Neier is the president of the Open Society Institute.
Please send your RSVP to with your name and affiliation.
Note: seating may be limited.
