Erotica, Pornography and the Obscene in Europe
University of Warwick, UK. April 10-12, 2013.
This three day interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together scholars of all levels who discuss material oft talked about, rarely read. The conference aims to draw out key debates in the study of erotica, pornography and the obscene, in the context of sex and sexuality in Europe, 1600-1900. The conference organisers welcome research papers on literature, print, objects, philosophy or individuals that deal directly with material that has been considered ‘hidden’ away or perceived to be ‘unfit for modest ears’.
