Danielle Citron Named a 2019 MacArthur Fellow
Danielle Citron of Boston University School of Law has been named a 2019 MacArthur Fellow in recognition of her work as a leading privacy and constitutional law scholar countering hate crimes, revenge porn, and other cyberspace abuses.
Professor Citron is vice president of the nonprofit Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, whose mission is to combat online abuses that threaten civil rights and civil liberties. She is also the author of Hate Crimes in Cyberspace, as well as more than 30 major law review articles on privacy and cyber harassment.
Each MacArthur Fellow is awarded a $650,000 no-strings-attached “genius” grant in recognition of their exceptional creativity, significant achievements, and promise for future advances.
