My project looks at internet censorship systems in Egypt and Iran. I argue that many state and non-state actors have an influential role in producing censorship systems. I begin by looking at the architecture of the internet. I then widen my angle to include the research centers, government agencies and private companies that produce online censorship technologies. Navigating the networks of internet censorship while spatially located within its infrastructures and institutions exposed past and present actors involved in producing and maintaining internet censorship.
