Children’s Media: More Harm than Good?

Media@LSE Public Lecture

Public policy is scrutinising potential media harms, given rapid expansion of the internet, fears over ‘toxic’ childhood, and pressing dilemmas for media regulation. But is the media the problem or the solution?

Sonia Livingstone (BSc Psychology, UCL; DPhil Social Psychology, Oxford) joined the LSE in 1990 and is Professor of Social Psychology in the Department of Media and Communications. She is author of ten books, and has published widely on the subject of media audiences, focusing on audience reception of diverse television genres. Her recent work concerns children, young people and the internet, as part of a broader interest in the domestic, familial and educational contexts of new media access and use. She has most recently co-authored the work Media Consumption and Public Engagement: Beyond the presumption of attention (2007).
