Alice Y. L. Lee

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores the relationships between Internet public trials, social justice, and media literacy in civic and political contexts. It challenges some of the claims of social justice embedded in a public trial. It introduces the problems of public trials and discusses how media literacy can be a preventive strategy. A media literacy intervention model, which includes components of accessing, evaluating, and using information, is put forward to handle the issue. Media literacy helps members of society responsibly use information and support social justice, particularly during online social participation.
