Seeking Chinese Speakers as Research Assistants for May 23 and May 24 Session

We are looking for native Chinese speakers to participate in a two-day intensive session on Saturday May 23 and Sunday May 24 to identify propaganda on social media in China.  This effort is part of a broader project at Harvard's Department of Government and the Institute of Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) on Chinese media. Research assistants will be reading through Chinese documents to 1) identify social media content related to propaganda, and 2) record these posts along with metadata into a database (in excel).
