Journalism, Social Value, and a Philosophy of the Everyday in 1920s China This essay takes a 1920s scandalous case—the Ma-Wang Incident—as a study of the relationship established in Chinese journalism between events and everyday life. It argues that journalism, as a commodity form, and the emergence of everyday life as a problem of sociality were intrinsically linked, not merely through tabloid exposure but through the exploration of the philosophical import of the everyday as a problem of social value. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png positions asia critique Duke University Press

Abstract

This essay takes a 1920s scandalous case—the Ma-Wang Incident—as a study of the relationship established in Chinese journalism between events and everyday life. It argues that journalism, as a commodity form, and the emergence of everyday life as a problem of sociality were intrinsically linked, not merely through tabloid exposure but through the exploration of the philosophical import of the everyday as a problem of social value.
