Casey Fiesler is an assistant professor in the Department of Information Science (and Computer Science, by courtesy) at the University of Colorado Boulder. Armed with a PhD in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Tech and a JD from Vanderbilt Law School, she primarily researches social computing, law, ethics, and fan communities (occasionally all at the same time).

11.09.19 At CSCW 2019 in Austin, TX, I co-organized a workshop on qualitative methods and was a mentor for the doctoral consortium. Brianna Dym and Aaron Jiang both presented papers now published in PACM-HCI: “Moderation Challenges in Voice-based Online Communities On Discord” [blog post] and “‘Coming out okay’: Community narratives for LGBTQ identity recovery work” [blog post]. This was also officially the end of my 2.5 year tenure as CSCW Communications Co-Chair; I am particularly proud of having started the CSCW Medium Publication!
