Myself and Dr. Donna Peberdy are convening a BAFTSS Screening Sex Special Interest Group and are looking for colleagues interested in joining us. Our aim is primarily focussed on the critical examination sexual cultures and the screen in all its forms. Please take a look at our academic blog screeningsex.com which provides a good indication of our approach (the latest posts went live today - see below for details).
We intend to offer support and consolidation for research projects and publications as well as provide a space for networking opportunities, conference and symposia activity.
Please drop us a line at [log in to unmask] or follow and dm us via twitter @screeningsex. You simply need to be a paid-up member of BAFTSS and have an interest in being an active member of the group.
Darren and Donna
P.S. Thanks to all of you who have already signed up!
