Prof. Jennifer Pan, PhD (Stanford University) will give a presentation on her recent publication "Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for Its Rulers". Join via Zoom here.
Jennifer Pan is an Assistant Professor of Communication at Stanford University. Her research focuses on political communication and authoritarian politics. Pan uses experimental and computational methods with large-scale datasets on political activity in China and other authoritarian regimes to answer questions about how autocrats perpetuate their rule. How political censorship, propaganda, and information manipulation work in the digital age. How preferences and behaviors are shaped as a result.
Her book, Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for its Rulers (Oxford, 2020) shows how China's pursuit of political order transformed the country’s main social assistance program, Dibao, for repressive purposes. Her work has appeared in peer reviewed publications such as the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and Science.

BIGSSS Doctoral Colloquium
via Zoom, https://zoom.us/j/98266944212?pwd=MUFpK2ZrZ2VxTHU4SFpsaWdvRytnUT09
Organizers: Dr. Steffen Bandlow-Raffalski / Dr. Mandy Boehnke
Goal and Format
The colloquium offers the opportunity to present current issues (could be questions regarding your methods design, theoretical framework etc.), (first) results of individual dissertation projects or drafts of conference or journal papers and to discuss them with fellows and faculty. Presenters should make clear what they want from the discussion and send these expectations together with at least an abstract of their topic to the participants. The presentation itself should not exceed 25-30 minutes. Typically, presentations will get a short (5-7 min) comment by an expert faculty member or fellow to be followed by an open discussion with the audience. The fellows-first rule applies.
