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.
President, Deakin Philosophical Society.
