Crime, Justice and Social Media (Hardcover) (Michael Salter)
about this item
Social media is one of the first mass media platforms in which the content producers, distributers and consumers are predominantly women and children. However the same media technology that offers children and women unprecedented access to the public participation has also enabled ‘sexting’, ‘revenge ******’, online grooming and other forms of online abuse that disproportionately target children and women.Drawing on original qualitative research, this book lays out an innovative theoretical paradigm of online crime and justice that integrates critical theories of gender, technology and public space.
