“Emerging Work on Communicative Dimensions of Islamic State”
Much of the research on Islamic State's communication and media operations has emerged from a counter-terrorism framework. The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication seeks to encourage original scholarly contributions that grasp Islamic State and other radical groups from a broad multi-disciplinary perspective, encompassing the humanities and social sciences. Consistent with CARGC’s mission to mentor early-career scholars, this small, by-invitation only, workshop is a non-public event featuring emerging work by graduate students from JINCS/CARGC and around the world. It is meant as a prelude to a major conference, to be held at the University of Pennsylvania in late 2017.
