Roslyn Satchel Awarded Harvard's Berkman Klein Center for Fellowship

October 26, 2020  | 1 min read

On July 14, 2020, the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University announced Roslyn Satchel, Blanche E. Seaver Professor of Communication, as one of the center’s 2020–2021 fellowship recipients. The fellowship connects recipients to the center’s interdisciplinary scholar community to study how cyberspace interacts with society.

With the support of the fellowship, Satchel—whose research focuses on intimate partner violence, particularly in communities of faith as well as diversity and intersectionality in media, religion, and law—will study the influence of technology and media on resisting and/or reporting intimate partner violence. She will also analyze the COVID-19 pandemic policies and the resulting domestic abuse increases from such policies.

“During a moment in time when people worldwide are rising together to demand justice—racial, climate, economic, LGBTQIA+, gender, disability, immigrant, and beyond—it
is our privilege to welcome such a dazzling chorus of voices to the center,” said Rebecca Tabasky, Berkman Klein Center’s director of community.
