Berkman Center Now University-Wide

choppedlogo.jpgThe Berkman Center for Internet & Society has been elevated from a Harvard Law initiative to a University-wide research centre. Now, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

From the story:

“The Berkman Center’s focus on advancing the public interest at the intersections of law and technology, civic engagement, and international development, has already created a community of scholars from across the University,” said Harvard Provost Steven E. Hyman. “The elevation to a University-wide initiative is a natural evolution and we are eager to create new networks of interaction on a University-wide basis with the intent of bringing novel approaches to examining and addressing the complex issues presented by cyberspace.”


  1. That’s great for the Berkman Centre. I couldn’t help noticing, though, how flabby the provost’s prose is. So many meaningless abstracts bumped together.
