Catherine Powell Probes Transparency in Digital Channels

Former Fellow Catherine Powell (’94), a professor at Fordham Law School, co-authored a blog post for the Council on Foreign Relations about the workers who review and filter digital content for social media platforms (“Invisible Workers on the Global Assembly Line,” Jan. 9). “The relative invisibility of this workforce helps sustain the myth that what we see online is an unmediated space of free speech and open markets,” Catherine said.
