Dr. Hasinoff studies gender and sexuality in the context of new media. She uses 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. Her book, Sexting panic: Rethinking criminalization, privacy, and consent (University of Illinois Press, 2015) examines the construction of sexting as  a social problem and the responses to it in mass media, law, and education. Sexting Panic won the 2016 National Communication Association Diamond Anniversary Book Award. Dr. Hasinoff’s work also appears in Communication and Critical Cultural Studies, New Media & Society, Critical Studies in Media Communication, and Feminist Media Studies.
