This PhD day event is organised on a consortium basis by LSE, Goldsmiths and City, University of London. It will comprise 3 panel sessions of doctoral and postdoctoral students presenting works-in-progress across the day, concluding with a plenary talk by Dr Amy Hasinoff, author of Sexting panic: Rethinking criminalization, privacy, and consent. The aim is to create a lively debate amongst the community of feminist cultural studies and sociology scholars across our institutions, and beyond, and to encourage inter-university discussion and collaboration.
