BUSTED! – OII researchers help to debunk 50 most common myths about the Internet
27 November 2019
Corinne Cath-Speth was a doctoral student at the Oxford Internet Institute. As a cultural anthropologist, she applies the tools of anthropology to the study of Internet governance, in particular, the culture of the often-opaque organizations that enable the technical functioning of the Internet. Within that context, she focuses on the participation of human rights and civil liberties NGOs, that are aiming to change computer code instead of legal code to effect social change.
Prior to joining the OII for her DPhil, she worked as a program officer for the “Digital Team” of human rights NGO Article 19 and as a policy advisor for the US House of Representatives in Washington D.C.
Corinne is part of the inaugural cohort of students that received a doctoral studentship from the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science.
She has a BA in anthropology and an MA in International Relations from the University of Utrecht, and an MSc in Social Science of the Internet from the University of Oxford.
