Next Critical Sexology Seminar – 30th May – “Sex Critical Approaches to Pornography”

A guest-organized session convened by Prof. Feona Attwood & Dr Helen Hester, Middlesex University.
Venue: The Boardroom, 2nd Floor, College Building, Hendon Campus, Middlesex University
From 2pm. (The seminar will take the form of four 10-minute-long discussion papers followed by responses and debate. This session will therefore be shorter than the average Critical Sexology seminar.)
The guest organizers suggest that attendees might read Lisa Downing’s blog post on “sex critical” thinking prior to attending the seminar. (See here: http://www.sexcritical.co.uk/2012/07/27/what-is-sex-critical-and-why-should-we-care-about-it/ )
