Future Memory: Preserving Diverse Voices from and About China in a Time of Unification of Thought

  • Rudolf G. WagnerEmail author


This chapter describes the efforts of the Digital Archive of Chinese Studies (DACHS) to counter government censorship in contemporary China and the consequent loss of relevant data in Chinese public discussions as well as in Chinese Studies journals. By creating archives of the controversies and voices that have been silenced, DACHS, according to Wagner, is able to reconstitute a Chinese public sphere in all of its variety and divisiveness.
