8:00am HKT on Zoom
New Yorker staff writer Jiayang Fan’s recent cover article for the magazine, “How my mother and I became Chinese propaganda,” went viral when it was published last month. A moving reflection on U.S.-China relations, identity, immigration and nationalism in the age of COVID-19, the story also highlights the rampant disinformation around the virus. Fan will discuss this piece as well as her reporting on Hong Kong, which has included the long-form essay “Hong Kong’s protest movement and the fight for the city’s soul” reported on-the-ground during last years’ protests, as well as her profile of Hong Kong dissident pop singer, Denise Ho. Moderated by FCC president, Jodi Schneider.
Jiayang Fan is a staff writer for The New Yorker magazine, where she writes about China and Chinese-American politics and culture. Her work has also appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The New York Times Magazine and the Paris Review, among other places. Fan was born in Chongqing and moved to the U.S. when she was eight years old. She graduated from Williams College and received a Fulbright scholarship to spend a year in Korea.
