Registration is now open for the Arab Women, Media, and Sexuality
conference, to take place in York on May 26th, 2012. This international
conference is hosted and organised by the Centre for Women’s Studies at the
University of York/UK. It investigates the interdisciplinary study of
sexuality, media, and gender from an Arab perspective and the intersection
between all three. The AWMS conference aims to provide grounds for
discussion and analysis of these three disciplines and to encourage debate,
research and networking in these fields.
