“What Can Sexting Teach Us About Consent?”

Amy Hasinoff is an Assistant Professor in the Communication department at the CU Denver. Her work investigates how we think about new media and how those ideas affect the way we develop, use, and regulate communication technologies. Her book, “Sexting Panic” (2015), is about the well-intentioned but problematic responses to sexting in mass media, law, and education.
