Porn in Context: Social Media, Platforms, Communities

Tuesday, January 21st, 2020 6-8 pm


The GEM Lab invites you to a symposium titled, “Porn in Context: Social Media, Platforms, Communities.” From tagging online content NSFW, to exploring platform capitalism through online sex work, to cultivating an intellectual community in the face of student burnout, this symposium explores various sites of “affective intensities” where pornography and attention economies collide.


Featuring:

  • Rebecca Holt and Nikola Stepić, “Porn and Precarity: Sharing Difficult Knowledge in the Classroom and Beyond”

  • Antonia Hernández, “A Token is a Token is a Token: Financial Discrimination on a Sexcam Platform”

  • Dr. Susanna Paasonen, "Porn in Social Media Economy: Elusive and Expansive"
