On pornography


DPS meeting
On pornography
Wednesday 30 March from 5-6pm in ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus

This Wednesday 30 March from 5-6pm in room ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus the Deakin Philosophical Society will meet to discuss a 2007 article by philosopher Nina Power, ‘Naughty but nice’, in which she discusses the possibility of a humanist pornography. The article, published in New Humanist, is available online at http://newhumanist.org.uk/1500.

For an insider's criticism of the porn industry, see ‘Scenes from my life in porn’ by journalist Evan Wright (the author of Generation Kill, a book about Wright's time as a journalist embedded with US forces during the 2003 Iraq invasion and on which the HBO TV series is based). Wright's article, available online at http://www.laweekly.com/2000-04-06/news/scenes-from-my-life-in-porn/, might be used as a basis for criticising Power's article.

Note that the DPS meeting will finish at 6pm this week to allow people time to get to Philosophy Café.

Kind regards,

Dylan Nickelson,
President, Deakin Philosophical Society.
