We call for papers examining the processes through which sexuality is mediated, with special interest in media genres and sectors that may not appear as “sexual” at first sight. Indeed, the queer starting point of this conference is that all media, even those that present as “non- sexual”, are actually actively involved in sexual politics, for instance through the claim of sexual decency. This also implies that all sexualities, even those that present as natural and timeless – starting with heterosexuality –, are actually the product of cultural processes, in which the media play a key role.
