F06 - Sex, History, and Controversy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It's time to question the historical consequences of prudery more closely than ever?and to keep controversy, evidence, and revelation as our meticulous goals. The presenters open discussions on obstacles to the documentation and promotion of sexually explicit collections. Bring your own roadblocks: Is it particular body parts; is it articulate copywriting; is it job security; is it self-censorship? We aim to cultivate and support the courage and success of our colleagues who are willing to document sexual topics.
