Tiananmen at Thirty; Memory as an Act of Resistance in the People's Republic of Amnesia

Thirty years after the brutal crackdown, the Tiananmen anniversary has become more – rather than less – politically sensitive as time has passed. Every year, the authorities use a range of tactics to suppress both the anniversary commemorations and journalistic reporting on them. In this talk, Louisa Lim examines the ways in which the legacy of Tiananmen has been excised from the collective and institutional memory in today’s China, as well as looking at the cost of memory and the role that foreign correspondents play in shaping memories of June Fourth outside China.
