Why you should listen

Amy Adele Hasinoff investigates how we think about communication technologies as both the cause of and solution to social problems. She wrote a book, Sexting Panic, about the well-intentioned but problematic responses to sexting in mass media, law and education. The National Communication Association described it as "[T]he rare book that advances scholarly conversations while also promising to enrich family conversations around the dinner table."

Hasinoff is an Assistant Professor in the communication department at the University of Colorado Denver. She publishes regularly in scholarly journals and books and wrote an op-ed about sexting for the New York Times.
