Please email fah-infra_structures2020@coventry.ac.uk if you are interested in attending.

Dr Sanjay Sharma is Senior Lecture in Sociology and Communications at Brunel University. His work is of an interdisciplinary nature, drawing on cultural, media and sociological studies approaches. This research is located in the areas of racialization and difference, cultural politics and new media, which critically consider questions of representation, radical pedagogy, subjectivity and materiality. These interventions operate through thematics of 'critical race theory' and 'technologies of race'. In particular, his work is concerned with bridging conceptual and political issues, especially in relation to the production of racialized knowledge and material culture.

Dr Adrienne Evans is a Reader at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Coventry University. Her research focuses on accounts of intimacy in the context of postfeminist sensibility. In her work, she explores ways in which gender organises personal, social, intimate and cultural relationships, as well as their manifestations in media culture. She has published extensively on these topics and is the author of, among others, Technologies of Sexiness (OUP, 2014) and Postfeministm and Health (Routledge, 2018).
