Each week the CSPH highlights an upcoming workshop, conference, or other continuing education opportunity pertaining to sexuality, gender, or reproductive justice issues. This week we are featuring SwellCon 2013 and Woodhull’s 2013 Sexual Freedom Summit.
Who: The Smitten Kitten
What: SwellCon, a conference devoted to critical conversations about erotic media
Where: Minneapolis, MN
When: August 2-4, 2013
Why: SwellCon is interested in examining the intersection of media and sexuality, whether it is a porn film, news coverage of sexual issues or social media building sexual communities. The meeting calls for dynamic and at times challenging discussions around these issues, and seeks to provide a framework in which attendees can share their own theoretical frameworks and practical skills. SwellCon is especially invested in presenting under-represented voices, and encourages people of color, differently-abled people, sex workers, LGBTQUIA folks, people of faith, and non-academics to send proposals and attend! They’ll be offering a sliding scale to cover travel and lodging costs. For more information on attending or submitting, check out the website here.
