Mask Diplomacy: Northeast Asia Information & Image Wars
April 14, 2020: 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Our next Virtual Talk-About Series will feature public diplomacy expert Nancy Snow and will take place over Zoom on Tuesday, April 14 at 10:00 – 11:00 AM Pacific Time.
Nancy Snow will explain how COVID-19 has spurred both promising and concerning dynamics in Northeast Asia. Japan and China, while being antagonist countries, are collaborating and generating goodwill in surprising ways to address the pandemic. Meanwhile, comparative information and image war has been set into motion among Japan, China, and South Korea, three countries with distinct approaches to responding to the coronavirus. Who’s winning the image war? Does it even matter in a global pandemic? Snow will argue that how China, South Korea, and Japan handle the virus in 2020 will shape their national image and reputation for years to come.
Cal State Fullerton professor emeritus, Nancy Snow, is among the most recognized scholars in propaganda and public diplomacy with a special focus on East Asia. A resident of Tokyo, Japan who consults on public diplomacy and nation branding in China, South Korea and Japan, Snow is the Walt Disney Faculty Chair in Global Media and Communications at Schwarzman College, Tsinghua University, on leave from her special appointment as Pax Mundi Professor of Public Diplomacy, Kyoto University of Foreign Studies.
