The fellow will create a catalogue of user-created censorship circumvention techniques and identify methods that jointly maximize information accessibility and circumvention effectiveness

From embedding text in images to rearranging word order of online posts, netizens in China continue to come up with creative ways to post content deemed sensitive by the government while evading censorship. The project seeks to systematically analyze the cost in the adoption and consumption of user-generated censorship circumvention techniques. In doing so, it aims to identify techniques that users can easily replicate while still being effective at communicating the intended message.
