University to debate issue at ‘Performing Sexual Liberation’ conference on Friday 24 October

Controversial questions surrounding whether or not pornography is sexually liberating for women will be addressed at an upcoming public conference at College Court, taking place on Friday 24 October between 10:00am and 6:00pm.

The ‘Performing Sexual Liberation: The Body and the Medical Authority of Pornography’ conference has been organised by Dr Heather Brunskell-Evans (pictured) from the Centre for Medical Humanities and will bring together an array of international scholars to examine the current academic trend in cultural studies for analysing pornography as sexually liberating for women - and offers a counter point to this popular argument.

The conference will address whether pornography as an emblem of sexual freedom in a democratic society needs rethinking and how medical industries are providing pornography with a considerable amount of legitimacy and influence with regard to sexuality.

Tickets to the event cost £7 and the event is open to the public.
