This international conference will interrogate 'sexualisation', exploring sexual politics across key social and cultural spheres. We encourage papers that explore the multiple meanings of sexualised cultures, across social generations, cultural groups and within and between different sites -- for example workplaces, schools, leisure spaces, intimate sexual relationships and online culture.

Our goal is to create a space for dialogue that spans disciplinary, theoretical, political and national boundaries. We are keen to include practitioners, members of NGOs, policy makers and other stakeholders in the conference as presenters and participants. We will also be holding a student networking session for postgraduates, postdocs and researchers working in this area. We are committed to ensuring diversity in participation across geographical location, race, ethnicity and sexual and gendered identities.
