Mark Greif: "How to Look at Pornography: Notes from a Reconceptualization"

Professor Mark Greif will present some thoughts and problems from an ongoing writing project to rethink approaches to pornography, as it might (1) juxtapose pornography as a set of stylized, formal genres within low-cultural or "popular" arts with pornography as a "social problem"; (2) juxtapose changes from the Internet with the 300-year-long history of modern pornographic writing, picturing, and film; (3) juxtapose male-female with male-male, female-female, trans and gender-dissident pornographies; (4) present some alternative choices--if pornography does continue to present a "social problem"--for what sort of "social problem" pornography might be today.

Mark Greif is Associate Professor, English.
