Announcing our keynote…

We are excited to welcome Dr. Casey Fiesler as our 2017 keynote speaker!

Casey Fiesler is an assistant professor and founding faculty in the Department of Information Science at University of Colorado Boulder. Armed with a PhD in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Tech and a JD from Vanderbilt Law School, she primarily conducts research in the areas of online communities, law and ethics, social norms, and fandom. Her dissertation research focused on the role that copyright law plays in online creative communities. She is also a copyright activist (having interned at Creative Commons and currently part of the legal committee for the Organization for Transformative Works) and occasional commentator on issues related to women and technology. Her work has won Best Paper Awards and Honorable Mentions at CSCW and CHI, but more importantly, she once remixed a Barbie book and ended up on NPR
