REPRESENTATION, AGENCY, AND FETISHIZATION: Why queers pulishing queer realities is important
DESCRIPTION: Mainstream pornography often relies upon a structured approach that assigns a narrative to performers rather than allowing them to document their own stories on film. The result can definitely be hot, but can also be problematic. In this session, we will discuss how porn has gotten to a place of representation through fetishization, and ways that we can make the industry more fair, equitable, and truly represenational.
1:30-2:30pm – Education Building room 113
HOW CAN PORN BE ETHICALLY MADE?
DESCRIPTION: In this session, we will run through a quick history of pornography, and look at the forces that have created the types of porn that we see today. From early photographs, Super 8 cameras, and all the way up to webcams and iPhones, we’ll talk about accessibility, queer narratives, patriarchal influences, the male gaze, and sex work myths. From there we’ll explore ways that feminist pornographers and performers today are turning the industry on its head.
