NGTC Student Fellows Alicia Christensen, Ece Başkol, and Paige Ross Host Section 230 "Safe Space"

Thu, 12/02/2021

          Nebraska Governance and Technology Center Student Fellows Paige Ross and Alicia Christensen of the University of Nebraska College of Law and Ece Baskol of the College of Business finished their semester-long research into Section 230 of the United States Communications Decency Act by holding a Section 230 “Safe Space;” taking an afternoon to create a creative, cozy space in the law school student lounge where students, staff, and faculty could stop by to discuss any questions they might have about the controversial act, recently featured prominently in the news.

          As the group explained in their promotional outreach:

A safe space to find out more about Section 230 – presented by Nebraska Governance and Technology student fellows.

The Section 230 Safe Space provides Section 230 in a nutshell and information on the cornucopia of proposals to reform it—all you need to understand that there probably isn’t a way for us to have it all and a comfy place to process your complicated feelings about that fact. Distract yourself from having to make the choice between censorship or effectively cracking down on the exploitation of children with cider and seasonal treats!

After a visit to the Section 230 Safe Space, you’ll be equipped with the essential details about the complicated, highly revered social values at odds in the debate over Section 230 reform, handy when determining whether the newest member of Congress to enter the debate even knows what they’re talking about.

Join us for refreshments, information, and solace November 22nd from noon to one in the student lounge!

          In addition to being a J.D. candidate at the College of Law, Alicia Christensen holds a master’s degree in English Language and Literature/Letters from the University of Nebraska. She previously worked 14 years as the Acquisitions Editor at the University of Nebraska Press.

          Paige Ross is a 2L at the College of Law; she previously graduated from Miami University with a bachelor’s degree in history. In addition to her studies, Paige serves as the Career Coordinator of the Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Club, a Space Law Student Researcher, and Secretary of the Women’s Law Caucus.

          Ece Başkol is PhD Student in Marketing at the University of Nebraska College of Business. Prior to coming to Nebraska, Ece received a Master of Arts degree from Boğaziçi Üniversitesi in Istanbul, Turkey, graduating with a 4.0 GPA.
