The Sexual Politics of Media Production and Regulation

We are pleased to invite you to the Mediating Sexualities. The Sexual Politics of Media Production and Regulation international conference, which will take place online, on November 2nd, 3rd and 4th 2020.

Access to the pre-recorded papers and participation in live discussions is free of charge, upon registration: https://mediasex2020.univ-lille.fr. All pre-recorded content will be available in English and French. Depending on the panels, it will be possible to ask questions to the speakers in French and/or English.

By bringing together about thirty researchers working from five different countries, this conference aims to answer questions such as:

  • How are “pornography” and “hate” regulated on social media?

  • How is platform capitalism changing pornography and sex work?

  • What representations of sexuality are considered acceptable on the billboards of French cities?

  • How is sexuality scripted for cinema and television?

  • How has the #MeToo movement changed the journalistic coverage of sexuality and the gender dynamics inside press newsrooms?


Mediating Sexualities also aims to show how much feminist and queer approaches are important to understand the media ecosystems that organise our public experiences.


This conference is supported by the Arènes and Gériico research units, and by the University of Lille.


Looking forward!


Yours sincerely,

Béatrice Damian-Gaillard & Florian Vörös for the conference team
