Mediating Sexualities

Published on 13 October 2020 par Institut du genre

This conference is supported by the Arènes and Gériico research units, and by the University of Lille.

By bringing together about thirty researchers working from five different countries, this conference aims to answer questions such as:

- How are “pornography” and “hate” regulated on social media?
- How is platform capitalism changing pornography and sex work?
- What representations of sexuality are considered acceptable on the billboards of French cities?
– How does sexuality gets scripted for cinema and television?
– How has #MeToo movement changed the journalistic coverage of sexuality and the gender dynamics inside press newsrooms?

Mediating Sexualities also aims to show how much feminist and queer approaches are important to understand the media ecosystems that organise our public experiences.
