Our close-knit community of scholars is the intellectual heart and soul of CARGC.
Whether through regular meetings, research presentations, or just spending time at CARGC's large office space, we are a supportive community that seeks to build knowledge together. Meet our staff, postdoctoral fellows, and doctoral fellows for 2020-21.
The CARGC staff and interim director Guobin Yang envision and facilitate our robust slate of events, publications, and activities.
Our postdoctoral fellows spend two years in residence at CARGC, participating fully in the life of the center.
Doctoral & Research Fellows
CARGC Doctoral Fellows are currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the Annenberg School and working on issues of relevance to global communication. We also work with Penn undergraduates interested in the field.
CARGC Research Affiliates develop their own research and writing program, participate in CARGC activities, and interact with students and faculty.
