To overcome these challenges and to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the online public environments in Iran, Khazraee and his colleagues at the Center for Global Communication Studies at University of Pennsylvania started a project for the Cartography of Iran’s online publics. The goal of the project is collecting empirical evidence that helps us to achieve a high resolution image of public online environments in Iran. As part of this project, he has conducted research on the Twitter use among Iranian users during Iran’s 2013 presidential election.
In August 2016, the Center for Global Communication Studies (CGCS) merged with the Project for Advanced Research in Global Communication (PARGC) to form the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC). This archival website serves as a record of the events, publications, and other materials created by and for CGCS from 2006-2016. For more information about current work, please visit the websites of CARGC or the Annenberg School for Communication.
