About Lynn Schofield Clark
I'm an author and media professor who researches and writes about how digital and mobile media are changing the lives of diverse U.S. young people and their families. Regina Marchi and I have recently coauthored Young People and the Future of News: Social Media and the Rise of Connective Journalism for Cambridge University Press (2017). It's about how the definitions of news are changing as young people use social media in their relationships with (and sometimes in advocacy for) their communities of concern (their neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, etc.). My earlier books are Parenting in a Digital Age, published by Oxford University Press in 2013; From Angels to Aliens: Teenagers, the Media, and the Supernatural, published by Oxford University Press in 2005; and Media, Home and Family, co-authored with Diane Alters, Stewart Hoover, Joseph Champ, and Lee Hood, published by Routledge in 2004.
