Lecture Studium Generale: Sex on screen

Sex on screen Linda DuitsUtrecht University’s Studium Generale organizes lecture series on topics of general interest. In the series Pop Culture Matters they examine the role of popular culture in society. I was invited to give the kick-off lecture, about sex on screen. I discussed concerns over sexualization, approaches investigating media effects versus approaches focussing on processes of meaning making, and I problematized media literacy, which is often offered as a solution against sexualization.

The lecture, conducted in English, was held in TivoliVredenburg. It can be viewed in full here. There was also an English promo video made, which may be viewed here
