Hi Fiona:

The Collection on Online Pornography is certainly much needed. 

I'm interested in submitting a paper on our research into sexual and pornographic searching on Web search engines. 

Do you have a particular publisher? How will the papers be published? 

Cheers, Amanda

>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.
