Please join us for a webinar to explore the role of new technologies in shaping human sex and intimacy, issues that have been starkly highlighted during the restrictions on human contact imposed globally in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this seminar, we will consider:

  • The ways in which technologies produce human intimacy in sometimes unexpected ways
  • New ways that people seek intimacy and navigate cultures of sex and intimacy using digital technologies
  • How technologies mediate human connection in ways that reform and expand possibilities for sex and intimacy
