Politicization of non-public livesCase studies of the Iranian Facebook pages between 2011 and 2013This is a research on Iranian Facebook pages where the lost lives - martyrs - and lthe ives in danger - political prisoners - have been in the focus. All cases are in direct connection to the aftermath of presidential ellection 2009. It is aimed to explore how user-generated contents on the lost lives and lives in danger on these Facebook pages are produced on the ground of symbolic violence of gender politics. The research takes Butler's concept of heteronormativity as the point of departure in order to question how non-public lives are politicized through user-generated contents on those Facebook pages.
