“The Paradox of Pornography: Understanding Sex and Gender in a Mass-Mediated World”

Apr 23 2013 6:30 pm

 Robert Jensen, a professor in the UT School of Journalism and author of Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity, will teach a three-session course on the feminist critique of pornography. http://cie.austin.utexas.edu/informalclasses/index.php/The_Paradox_of_Pornography/?num=IC13503

 

In the past two decades, pornography has become increasingly accepted in the mainstream of U.S. culture, while at the same time the content of the material has become more and more overtly cruel and degrading to women. How do we explain this apparent paradox? Jensen will draw on 20 years of research on sexually explicit material and the multi-billion-dollar pornography industry to explain the political, legal, and sociological issues facing today’s pornographic culture.

There is a fee for the course. Information and registration online. http://cie.austin.utexas.edu/informalclasses/index.php/The_Paradox_of_Pornography/?num=IC13503
