Beskrivning av projektet
The present research project studies concepts, technologies, and practices of security in the People’s Republic of China. This is done in order to uncover Chinese visions of the political: how are limits of freedom modulated in China through political concepts, communication technologies, bureaucratic institutions and everyday practices that relate to security? The study combines the study of conceptual history of national security, visual online censorship within visual security studies, and political sociology of security practitioners to get a multifaceted view of how security works and is operated in China. As such, the study contributes to international security studies, China studies, and governmentality studies, and is vital for gaining a deeper understanding of China for society at large.
