Workshop: "Ethics of Pornography. Porn – Power – Identity"

von Freitag, 13. Juli 2018 -  14:00
bis Samstag, 14. Juli 2018 - 16:00

Pornography is a multi-billion dollar industry feeding myriad consumers, a pervasive aspect of a liberal modern culture, and largely accessible in everyday life. There are plenty of philosophical questions about the real role and value of porn in culture and in our lives, and pornography has indeed been a topic in feminist, legal, and general ethical discussions since at least the 1970s.


In this workshop, while we set special emphasis on feminist topics we also aim to address certain moral dimensions of porn (such as its liberatory and formative role for identities) as well as certain legal aspects of pornography.

 

Speakers include: Prof. Mari Mikkola (Oxford); Prof. Marcus Stiglegger (Berlin); Prof. Julia Hoernle (London); Dr. Anja Schmidt (Halle-Wittenberg); Dr. Laura Meritt (Berlin).
