Catherine Buni (2017) is a Vermont-based independent writer focusing on technology, health, and gender. Her reporting and writing has been published by theAtlantic.com, The Boston Globe, Literary Hub, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The New York Times, Orion, The Rumpus, The Verge, The Writer, and others. Her work is anthologized in numerous collections, taught in university classrooms, and cited by such journals and institutions as the Harvard Law Review, Foreign Affairs, and The Council of Europe.
More recently Catherine covered online violence and commercial content moderation, backed by The Nation Institute’s Investigative Fund. “The Secret Rules of the Internet,” an article she co-authored with Soraya Chemaly and published by The Verge, was a 2017 Mirror Award recipient. For the last seven years, she has been tracking emerging community-based movements to prevent sexual assault.
While a Logan Nonfiction Program fellow, Catherine will complete a longform essay as well as a book proposal about one New England town where advocates, educators, and activists are testing an experimental, CDC-funded program designed to end sexual violence. What happens, she asks, when a handful of people decide to stop sexual assault where they live, from schoolroom to frat house to home?
