Against the universal claims in the digital age, this talk will take into account digital platforms in Asia, through recent technologies such as clubhouse and podcasts, and reflect on the notion of "Chineseness". In particular, the talk will refer to the Mandarin in-betweenness/shicha podcast that discusses the shared experience on the complexities of power and identity within the Chinese-speaking world and its transnational significance in the digital age.
