On November 29, 2011, the Communication University of China held an opening ceremony to formally announce the establishment of the Center for Marxist Communication and Popularization. A forum on “Marxist Communication and Popularization” was held at the same time. Government leaders from the Propaganda Ministry, the State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television, and over 70 scholars from prestigious universities and institutions such as Beijing University, Tsinghua University, and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences all attended the ceremony. The center is the first of its kind to specifically study Marxist communication and popularization in order to promote the development, advancement, and popularization of Marxism. Another purpose is to implement the policy of the Chinese Communist Party’s 17th Congress, the development and promotion of Chinese socialist culture.
