this day in history…

The Shenzhen Archive Information Web (深圳档案信息网) has been uploading monthly records of important Shenzhen matters (深圳大事记). Years 2002 through 2009 have been uploaded and it is possible to learn that ten years ago, on Feb 27, 2003, the Shenzhen City Two Meetings (两会) opened. The digital archive journal (电子期刊) is also online, offering insight into how archival history stregthens the nation and other ideological positioning. In turn, these reports contextualize website articles on Shenzhen history, such as interpretations of the Sanzhoutian Uprising (解读三洲田起义) or background on the opening of Shenzhen’s Hongfa Temple (深圳弘法寺的前世今生). All this information has been going up over the past two years or so, and suggests the contours of Shenzhen’s growing online presence.
