This week in Exploring New Media: Users, Settings, Implications, feminist media scholar Dr Deb Waterhouse-Watson delivered a riveting guest lecture on the complexities of how digital media has recently intersected (often in a problematic way) with potential and actual legal proceedings.

Deb's Lecture - 'Twitter on Trial'
Dr Deb Waterhouse-Watson speaks at Deakin University, 26 August 2013.

Please feel free to email me if you would like a notification when I complete this…
