Introducing Our New Director
We are thrilled to announce that Aswin Punathambekar has joined the Annenberg School as Professor of Communication and Director of CARGC, effective June 1.
Our four key research themes are grounded in our vision of inclusive globalization and engage pressing matters in geopolitics and communication. Within these themes, we have several working groups.
CARGC is a supportive and inclusive community of scholars from around the world, driven by intellectual generosity, curiosity, and exchange.
CARGC Press has published numerous papers, briefs, and special issues of journals. CARGC is also an incubator for our fellows’ individual publications.
Supporting early career scholars worldwide, our fellows collaborate in research, author publications, and organize events. We are keen to nurture scholars who integrate primary sources and regional expertise in analyses of media, geopolitics, technology, and culture.
