My name is Lokman Tsui. I am a doctoral candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. My dissertation examines institutional changes of journalism, driven by the internet, in a globalized world. My research interests center more generally around new media, global communication, and journalism. I divide my time between Philadelphia, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
I am co-editor of The Hyperlinked Society: Questioning Connections in the Digital Age (2008) together with Dr. Turow. My articles also appeared in Global Dialogue, China Information and in the newsletter for the International Institute for Asian Studies. I was guest editor of China Information for a theme issue on the socio-political impact of the Internet in China.
I earned my MA degree at the University of Leiden in Sinology (Chinese Studies) on the topic of internet regulation and control in China. I participated in an exchange program at the Graduate School of Journalism of the National Taiwan University (NTU), worked for the Center for Law in the Information Society at the University of Leiden and interned at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at the Harvard Law School.
