UNESCO Chair on Cyberspace and Culture: Dual-Spacization of the World

Description and Mandate of the Chair

The UNESCO Chair of Cyberspace and Culture: Dual-Spacization of the World is focused on two kinds of activities: Education and Research. Hence, this project defines courses in both BA and MA levels at Faculty of World Studies and Faculty of Social Sciences at University of Tehran. Also, online courses are proposed in case international students want to join this program virtually. Doing research projects on cyberspace with a dual spacized paradigm is our second focus.

Here, having in mind the unique nature of our dual globalized environment, we study political, cultural, economic, and global aspects of the new world by our new concepts such as virtual time, virtual work, de-centralization of productions, distributions and consumptions, etc. to show how issues like poverty, education, and mutual understanding could be worked through.

Over the last few years large volumes of studies with this theoretical framework have been carried out both on Iranian and global contexts which culminated in continuous rectification of the theory and generated new trends in studying cyberspace.

Now, the UNESCO Chair of Cyberspace and Culture: Dual-Spacization of the World under the close supervision of Prof. Saied Reza Ameli, gives a new dimension to this subject and studies of Iranian and international cyberspace with a dual-spacized view.
