Brittany Thomas

S.T.E.A.M. Fellow

Brittany Thomas is a 2021 graduate of the Fordham University School of Law, where she concentrated in Intellectual Property and Information Law. She earned her bachelor’s in Classics and Anthropology from Colby College, using anthropology to critically explore American media, looking particularly at television and its effects on race, class and gender dynamics. Before law school, Brittany worked in television for five years, primarily at Viacom Media Networks and Fuse TV, working to promote thoughtful representation in a medium she felt was a central part of the American zeitgeist. Through her work, she developed a keen interest in the relationships between law, technology, equity and consumer privacy. These interests only grew while she was in law school and she worked as an Online Privacy Project Fellow with Fordham’s Center on Law and Information Policy and as a Legal & Special Projects Intern with New America’s Open Technology Institute. She is a proud native of Harlem, New York, and loves traveling, history podcasts and very long walks.
