Call for Papers: Collection on Online Pornography

Proposals are sought for a new edited collection on online pornography.

Although online pornography attracts a great deal of public attention and is frequently the focus of moral, political and legal debate, comparatively little attention has been paid to it by academics. This is a glaring knowledge gap, particularly given the central role of pornography in the development of new technologies and the rapid expansion and development of online pornography. This collection responds to the pressing need for academic work in this area.

Proposals are welcomed on, but not limited to, the following topics and areas:

Regulation, censorship and governance
The economics of online porn
Reviewing porn: industry publications, experts, communities, fans
Porn audiences
Porn and file sharing
Commercial porn sites
Celebrity sex tapes
Realcore – amateur sex online
Alternative porn and subcultures
‘Smart smut’ – online magazines and erotica
Pornstars online
Sex art, Slash fiction, Retro porn
Porn and shock sites

Proposals of 200-250 words, accompanied by a biographical note of 100 words, should be sent to Feona Attwood at f.attwood at shu.ac.uk by March 30 2007.
