Cancan Wang is currently a PhD fellow at the Department of Digitalization, Copenhagen Business School. She holds a MA in Applied Cultural Analysis, University of Copenhagen, Denmark and a BA in Sociology, Fudan University, China. Her work in general explores how various aspects and consequences of China’s socio¬economic transformations are experienced, negotiated and acted upon in individual and institutional practices. Her PhD project deals with the changes brought by the application of social media in the public sector in China with an ethnographic approach. Set within the socio-cultural context in China, this project focuses on the technological affordances of social media platforms in political communication, and how that interacts with the practice of Public-Private-Citizen collaboration.
