Feminist Media Histories special issue on Sex and the Materiality of Adult Media is now out!


The Spring 2019 issue of Feminist Media Histories is now out! This issue, guest edited by Elena Gorfinkel, focuses on sex and the materiality of adult media.

From the Editor’s Introduction:

“This issue’s contributions bring together approaches that expand and complicate distinctions between high and low forms, commercial porn industries and independent productions, and queer and straight sex media, contesting the purisms of what can count as cinema, art, and value by instead foregrounding the materiality of the sex film. They suggest that we must contend with how sexual representations—across practices, communities, publics, and counter-publics—have always revealed adult media to be vexed sites of materiality.”
