互联网研究须警惕简单二分法

#研究分享#【互联网研究须警惕简单二分法】中国的互联网研究虽火,但在理解其多面性、多样化、参与者和动力等方面还有较多欠缺。这因为研究上有这样一种倾向,即更看重技术而不是人和意义,惯用非此即彼的二分法进行分析:国家/网民、政治/娱乐、专制/民主。by @杨国斌Yangguobin

Political contestation in Chinese digital spaces: Deepening the critical inquiry

Guobin Yang
University of Pennsylvania, USA

Abstract
Although research on the Chinese Internet is thriving, our understanding of its
multidimensional character, its diverse forms, actors, and dynamics remains limited.
This is due to a tendency to focus on technology at the expense of meaning and people,
as well as a bias towards sweeping and dichotomous analytical categories, such as state
vs. netizens, politics vs. entertainment, and authoritarianism vs. democracy. One of
the perniciously appealing ways of sensationalizing the Chinese Internet falls under this
either/or dichotomy. The seven contributions in this special issue of China Information
challenge such binaries, thus deepening the critical inquiry into the multiple dimensions
of the Chinese Internet. The authors show a more complex and nuanced picture of
actors and contestation in Chinese digital spaces, as well as the symbolic forms and
consequences of these contestations, illuminating new meanings of the political and
new dimensions of digital contestation, including race, class and their interactions with
the nation. Together, these articles exemplify an analytical orientation that I refer to as
‘deep Internet studies’. They explore the Internet as a facet of a deep China by linking
it to people’s practical, perceptual, and moral experiences as well as to the contexts of
institutions, politics, and policies.
Keywords:Chinese Internet, political contestation, microblogs (weibo), historicity, deep Internet
studies
