THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATION, COMMUNITY, AND VALUES
One of our purposes at the Berglund Center for Internet Studies is to encourage excellent research on the impact of the Internet. Toward that end we have awarded two to four research fellowships each year since our beginnings in 2001. One of our first Fellows was Dr. Deborah Wheeler, then of the University of Washington. Deborah’s Berglund Fellowship Report, ”Islam, Technology and Community: September 11th and Its Global Meaning” can be viewed at: http://bcis.pacificu.edu/journal/2001/10/wheeler.php
Since 2001 Deborah has been a Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Institute for Internet Studies and is now Assistant Professor of Political Science at the United States Naval Academy. She has just published The Internet In the Middle East in hardback in the SUNY Series in Computer Mediated Communication. (To order see: http://www.sunypress.edu/details.asp?id=61178 )
Deborah very generously acknowledged the support of the Berglund Center for Internet Studies, together with the University of Washington and Oxford University, in her forward. (For graphics of cover and acknowledgements see: http://bcis.pacificu.edu/journal/2005/07/wheeler2.php)
We are pleased to have been able to support Deborah’s scholarship and congratulate her on the new publication. We are confident that subsequent Berglund Fellows will be equally successful.
