The first Brown Bag Lunch Series talk of the semester will feature Jasmine McNealy, Assistant Professor in the communication department of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

McNealy will discuss her paper “Who owns your friends?” and what happens when employees responsible for managing company social media profiles leave the company.  Who owns the profile and the friends or followers associated with that account?

At Newhouse, McNealy teaches graduate and undergraduate level classes in communication law.  Her research focuses on media law including the areas of privacy, new media, anonymity, intellectual property and telecommunications.

The talk will be held on Tuesday, January 29 at noon in the Katzer Room (347) in Hinds Hall. All are welcome to attend.
