About

‘In my day we didn’t have sex education, we just picked up what we could off the television’ – Victoria Wood

Screening Sex is an academic blog curated by Darren Kerr and Donna Peberdy.

Each month we will be publishing research articles, opinion pieces, interviews and reviews on a range of topics related to sex on screen and sexual cultures. The idea behind ‘screening sex’ follows Linda Williams‘ dual notion of the physical screen (representation across film, television, web) and screening to conceal, evaluate or investigate.

Through our Network and Publications pages, we are also looking to establish a space that connects writers, researchers and creative practitioners working in the area.

Interested in contributing to the blog, joining our network or have a publication, cfp or event to promote? Contact us via the website or email screeningsex@gmail.com.
