Biography - Diasporic Disclosures: Social Networking, Neda, and the 2009 Iranian Presid... - 0 views

  •  
    "This article explores the ways in which social media was used by diasporic
    Iranians in the aftermath of the June 2009 Iranian presidential elections. With
    particular attention to global reactions to the death of Neda Agha-Soltan, the
    author considers how social networking sites such as Facebook create an
    "intimate public sphere," simultaneously facilitating and defanging collective
    activism through expressions of compassion for others."
