Jeffrey Lane on The Prosecutorial Affordances of Social Media:

Jeffrey Lane will talk about how gangs are defined and prosecuted through their social media use, drawing on a preliminary content analysis of conspiracy indictments and his fieldwork on street life in Harlem. He is looking for new perspectives to help grapple with this material and what it means in the context of community.
