Event details

Digital culture has radically changed how we relate to ourselves and others, shaping intimate moments and mediating the spaces between public and private realms of life.This exploratory series understands these as ‘postdigital’ in that they change real, physical lived experience, rather than existing wholly in the digital. Defined in this way, Postdigital Intimacies addresses important issues in how we make sense of our minds, bodies, relationships and emotional worlds.

Dr Amber Martin-Woodhead

Lecturer in Human Geography, Coventry University. ‘Sex Shops and Erotic Boutiques: Geographies of Sex-Product Retailing in Contemporary England’

Dr Simon Goodman

Research Fellow for the Centre of Innovative Research Across the Life Course, Coventry University. ‘How a photograph of a drowned refugee child turned a migrant crisis into a refugee crisis’

Dr Kaitlynn Mendes

Associate Professor in Media and Communication, University of Leicester. ‘Digitized disclosures of sexual violence: Curating postdigital intimacies in contemporary times’
