Introduced by Dr Margherita Sprio.

This event has been postponed.

In this special event, Jennifer Doyle and Camille Waring discuss the importance of early career researchers being in dialogue with established academics. This talk begins with a brief introduction of both speakers’ academic work, followed by a conversation about how their work intersects, the importance of early career researchers engaging with established academics and how this process enriches and influences the post-doctorate work of early career researchers.  It will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Professor Jennifer Doyle is the author of Campus Sex/Campus Security (2015), Hold It Against Me: Difficulty and Emotion in Contemporary Art (2013), and Sex Objects: Art and the Dialectics of Desire (2006). She has two forthcoming projects: an exhibition, Scientia Sexualis (ICA LA, fall 2024, co-curated with Jeanne Vaccaro), and a book about harassment, grief and paranoia, Shadow of My Shadow (Duke, 2024). She is a Professor of English at the University of California, Riverside where she also works with faculty in Art.

Her thesis is titled Whoretography: Sex Workers as Image-makers: A Critical Analysis of Sex Workers’ Self-representation in Online Public Spaces (2023).
