CFP: Internet filtering, digital literacy, and information poverty: Intersections and challenges

Internet filtering has three interrelated research issues: a lack of research and knowledge about internet filtering in the U.S.; disparate effects of filtering, along socioeconomic lines; and negative impacts on digital literacy
