Pornography and Popular Culture

There is still a good deal of discussion as to what pornography it  
seems to be easily available.  It is present on the internet and late  
night TV along with its previously existing popular venue--adult  
video rentals.  The term pornography has been variously applied to a  
wide array of contemporary media that appears overly indulgent in  
terms of its ability to elicit an emotional or physical response from  
viewers.  Despite its prevalence on the American landscape, we still  
struggle to define the term often referring merely to our ability to  
know pornography when we see it.

Contributors to this panel are invited to explore the many facets of  
pornography and the ways in which it is created, viewed and used  
within popular cultural venues whether it is disseminated via print,  
film video or on the internet.  Papers addressing the economic and  
industrial components of this topic are encouraged.
