I am an Assistant Professor in the Communication department at the University of Colorado Denver. I earned my PhD from the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and completed a postdoc funded by SSHRC at McGill.I use media and cultural studies methodologies to investigate how we think about new media and how those ideas affect the way we develop, use, and regulate communication technologies. My book, Sexting Panic (2015), is about the well-intentioned but problematic responses to sexting in mass media, law, and education. My research appears in journals such as New Media & Society, Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, Critical Studies in Media Communication, and Feminist Media Studies.My research investigates gendered norms of privacy, the criminalization of girls, the relationship between surveillance technologies and sexuality, and the connections between law and mass media. By bringing gender and sexuality studies to new media, I develop new ways of studying and responding to the challenges of understanding privacy, consent, and harm in digitally mediated social interactions.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Amy Adele Hasinoff and other top speakers and celebrities.
