Come to the Berkman Center for Internet & Society’s Fall 2015 Open House to
meet our faculty, fellows, and staff, and to learn about the many ways you
can get involved in our dynamic, exciting environment.
5:00-6:00 pm - Project Showcase Session: Select Berkman projects will be
present with information about their projects' current activities. Staff
working with each of these projects are eager to share information about
the big research questions they are considering, meet potential future
collaborators, and solicit ideas. In addition to the project tabling, there
will be space and opportunity to connect with new Berkman community members
and Berkman Center Staff and Faculty. You may come for any portion of time
during this session.
6:00-7:00 pm - Plenary Session with Jonathan Zittrain: Learn more about the
Berkman Center for Internet & Society -- and its network of researchers,
activists, faculty, students, technologists, entrepreneurs, artists, policy
makers, lawyers, and more -- in an interactive conversation lead by Berkman
Center Faculty Chair Jonathan Zittrain. If you’re curious about connecting
with our research, our community, or our events, or are just generally
interested in digital technologies and their impact on society, please join
7:00 pm - Reception: Keep the conversations going with the help of light
snacks and drinks.
As a University-wide research center at Harvard, our interdisciplinary
efforts in the exploration of cyberspace address a diverse range of
backgrounds and experiences. If you're interested in the Internet’s impact
on society and are looking to engage a community of world-class fellows and
faculty through events, conversations, research, and more please join us to
hear more about our upcoming academic year.
