I am applying for the Arts & Humanities Microgrants to support the editing and publication of my book: China and the Internet: Using New Media for Development and Social Change. The full manuscript of my book has been peer-reviewed and accepted by Rutgers University Press to be published in winter 2023. Broadly, my book analyzes the impacts of new media and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) on social change and development in contemporary China. Drawing on media coverage, NGO project records, government policy documents, and interactions between activists online, my book investigates how activists, NGOs, and the government have engaged in new media interventions, which have served to bridge the digital divide, to empower NGOs, to promote government accountability, to help alleviate hunger and malnutrition, and to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. These project and policy interventions—initiated jointly or independently by activists, NGOs, and the government—aim to utilize new media and ICTs to promote development and social change. Second, it explores the complex, multidimensional, and dynamic relations between activists, NGOs, and the government in new media interventions. Third, it examines the role and effects of ICTs, new media, and traditional media in promoting development and social change.
