Cyrus speaking in Grand Rapids, MI (Oct. 6, 2009)

I have the honor of speaking at the “Emerging Technologies & Media Mythologies” conference at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Tuesday, October 6, 2009.

I’ll be the Tuesday lunchtime speaker, where I’ll be talking about the Iranian Internet, before and after the recent election — I’ll be drawing from my forthcoming book, “The Internet of Elsewhere,” (Rutgers University Press, 2011).

I’m truly flattered to be invited to take the place of Iranian journalist and human rights activist, Akbar Ganji who was unable to attend.

I’m not sure I have any readers in Michigan, but if so, please don’t hesitate to come say hi!
