Research

research overview

  • Fiesler studies online communities and the role of rules in socio-technical systems, including law, ethics, and social norms. A large component of her work has focused on the role of copyright in online creative communities. In expanding this work, she is researching social norms around content creation, designing around social norms, and also ethics and norms around re-use of content (both ethically and legally). She has also been conducting research around feminist design and broadening participation for women in computing.
