new article in New Media & Society

Luci Pangrazio and Neil Selwyn have a new article just published in New Media & Society - titled "‘Personal data literacies’: A critical literacies approach to enhancing understandings of personal digital data'. The article develops a framework for understanding how people can engage with the personal data that is implicit in their uses of digital technology. In the wake of Cambridge Analytica and the Edward Snowden revelations, we argue that this is an increasingly important area of digital literacy that needs to be promoted throughout society.
