Event details of Repurposing Porn
Date 14 May 2021
Time 16:00

Porn-terrorism, Porntrepeneurism and Pandemic-porn. Online platforms have enabled a myriad of variations on an old mediatic trope: pornography. A case study of Maria Basura's performance art, which intersects decolonial and porn-terrorist practices, will be our starting point into the everlasting draw of prurience in odd places.

GUEST BIO:

Inès Ouedraogo teaches Latin American & Caribbean literature at Suffolk University and a seminar on Love and Eroticism at Emerson College and holds a PhD in Hispanic Cultures and Literatures as well as two graduate certificates in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and African Studies from Boston University. Her dissertation Devouring the Patriarchy: Anthropornophagy and Pleasure Politics in Brazilian Pop Porn Festival is a close reading of a film selection that disrupts hegemonic patriarchal discourses by "cannibalizing" oppressive norms and creating new sexual possibilities.
