Women and Media: Representations Past and Present
An interdisciplinary postgraduate conference
9th-10th March 2012
Queen's University Belfast
This two-day interdisciplinary conference seeks to examine the multi-faceted nature of women's relationship with the media. Encompassing the press, art, advertising and literature alongside a progressive shift towards more modern
forms such as social networking and blogging, this conference will look at the media's categorization and censorship of women through culture and the law, issues of prostitution, abortion, illegitimacy, rape and asylums as well as challenges to heteronormativity.
