Nieman News

2007 Nieman Fellow Luwei (Rose) Luqiu, now in the second year of a PhD program in communication at Penn State, has published a scholarly article, “The Reappearance of the Cult of Personality in China.” She enrolled in the doctoral program after the Chinese government shut down her website in 2014. Her current research involves censorship, propaganda, media, and social movements in authoritarian regimes. “Academic training provides me the skills to combine empirical examples that I accumulated during my professional life with related theories,” writes Luqui, who is now working on a research paper about online censorship in China.
