CONF: Representations of Prostitution, Sex Work and Sex trafficking between the 19th and 21st Centuries

University of Exeter, September 9-10, 2010. (NB: Change of location from London to Exeter)

"Little attention has been paid to the evolution of the prostitute's representation over the past two centuries from the novel and stage towards the globalized modes of film, television and the internet. This conference will bring together studies of the representation of prostitution from a range of cultures, including Europe, North Africa, the US, Latin America, China, Japan, Korea, and India. In this transnational context we will examine how various representational forms inflect the figure differently."
