In Australia and overseas, concern about ‘sexting’ among young people has
been widespread, and discussions have tended to focus on the ‘risks’ and
issues new technologies are seen to produce. This symposium presents the
findings from six studies by researchers in Australia and England working
across the fields of law, criminology, media, gender, and education. These
researchers have adopted a variety of methods to try to better understand
and unpack the issues around ‘sexting’. The symposium is intended to
provide space for questions and discussion between researchers and
stakeholders in this area, and thus to help inform wider public debates and
responses to the issues around young people and ‘sexting’ in Australia.
