07 Mar Critical Sexualities Graduate Students
Wednesday, March 7 & 14, 2012
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
Organized by the New Sexualities Research Focus Group, these symposia highlights the work of graduate students in Dr. Mireille Miller-Young’s Global Sex Work and Economies of Desire seminar. Drawing from critical sexualities studies frameworks, UCSB graduate students will present their work on issues as diverse as sex work, sexual technologies, sex panics, and sexual performance. Collectively, these papers examine the most cutting contemporary issues around gender and sexuality and, by offering new theoretical frameworks, serve as critical disruptions to established ways of knowing. The goal of this symposium is to create a wider venue for discussion about sexuality research. Following each meeting of this two part symposia we will feature the work a keynote speaker whose work demonstrates exciting new approaches in the field of Critical Sexualities.
