If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ella McPherson.

When vigilantism is expressed through digital media, it seeks and circulates targeted offenders’ personal information. The purpose of these acts is both informational in the sharing of details about transgressions, but also punitive in the type of visibility wilfully enacted against the target. Following an overview of relevant literature on user-led surveillance and policing, this talk will address some methodological challenges and possibilities associated with studying DV.
