Abstract:China's leaders have designated ICT as a strategic industry in their state-led effort to carve out a stronger position in the global economy. This dissertation situates China's ICT development in terms of the interplay between these broad transnational trends and domestic policies and institutional arrangements. This dissertation specifically highlights the centrality of Chinese labor in this context. Shifting class relations and identities in the ICT industry comprise a sensitive and portentous field; my dissertation probes the social, political and historical construction of the labor market and managerial practices in the ICT sector, as well as practices and subjectivities of contemporary Chinese ICT workers.
