Upcoming Event: China, the World, and the COVID Story

How We Got Here and What Lies Ahead

Dear friends,

We would like to invite you to join our digital summit, “China, the World, and the COVID Story: How We Got Here and What Lies Ahead.”

The summit, co-organized by Chinese Storytellers, NüVoices, and Young China Watchers, consists of three webinars reflecting on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its geopolitical implications for China and the world, from the perspectives of journalists, experts, and diaspora writers.

RSVP via Eventbrite.

(Posters of the summit are designed by Miles Goscha.)


NüVoices will kick off the summit with a panel on COVID-19 narratives and cultural conflicts on Thursday, June 11.

NüVoices is an international editorial collective gathering veteran and emerging writers, journalists, translators and artists to celebrate and support the diverse creative work of self-identified women working on the subject of China (broadly defined).


The second panel, which will take place on June 20, is hosted by Young China Watchers and about China’s diplomacy during the pandemic.

Young China Watchers is a global organization made up of ten chapters spanning China, Southeast Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States. Through in-person and virtual events among each chapter, as well as globally accessible media content including podcasts, interviews and editorials, YCW provides a chance for engaged individuals to interact and discuss the most pressing issues emerging from China today.


Chinese Storytellers will host the third and final session on June 25. China has ramped up information control over the past few years. In the first half of 2020, it has engaged in rounds of media spats with the U.S. Our panelists will discuss how to navigate the narrowing information flow coming out from China.

Chinese Storytellers is a community serving and elevating Chinese professionals in the global media industry.

RSVP now and mark your calendar. We look forward to meeting you at the event.
