Berkman Center Announces 2013-2014 Community
The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University today announced the fellows, faculty associates, and affiliates who will join the community in the 2013-2014 academic year, continuing a tradition of providing a home for some of the most incisive minds in law, technology, and social science, alongside path-breaking entrepreneurs and activists.
"Our incoming community is brimming with vision, talent, and a commitment to understand and drive change across the world, both online and off," Urs Gasser, Berkman's Executive Director, said. "With curiosity, rigor, and friendship, this network will explore and transform our collective knowledge, use, and governance of the Internet and digital technologies. We are privileged to bring these incredible people together at Berkman in the coming year."
The diverse class of fellows will work primarily in Cambridge, MA alongside Berkman Directors and staff, and will serve as key instigators within the vibrant research community. Honoring the networked ethos central to Berkman, faculty associates and affiliates from institutions the world over will actively collaborate with the Berkman community through an array of channels. These relationships, as well as the countless fruitful engagements with alumni, partners, students, interns, and other colleagues, are fundamental to the Berkman Center's work and identity, and serve to increase the capacity of the field and generate opportunities for lasting impact.
