Leading experts in social networking, intellectual property, open access, citizen media, and open software communities make up a new class of fellows at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. The 13 new fellows join the Center’s already dynamic community of scholars who are doing groundbreaking work in new media.
“This collection of research and faculty fellows represents the largest and most accomplished group that the Berkman Center has assembled over the past decade,” said Executive Director John Palfrey ’01. “What better way to celebrate our anniversary and past accomplishments, than by gathering a team that will build upon the Berkman Center’s history of looking around corners to the next decade’s issues and developments in cyberspace.”
For some fellows it is an opportunity to further their current work or incubate their developments, while for others their expertise is applied to the growing list of groundbreaking Berkman projects, including the Citizen Media Law Project, the OpenNet Initiative, and Global Voices.
This new class of fellows marks the 10th anniversary of the Berkman Center, which over the past decade has been home to many of the brightest minds in law, technology, and social science, as well as leading entrepreneurs and activists.
