HOSTED BY Coffee, Cake & Kisses

A conversation on connections between law and sex. 

The discussion will revolve around themes that may stray across consent, family law and its obsession with sex, sexbots, the disruptive power of sex in legal and academic practice, ethics, philosophy and sex.

What to expect?

The conversationalists will be Victoria Brooks and Marc Mason.

Victoria is a writer and researcher on ethics and sexuality. She is interested in sex generally, but particularly in relation to identity, female sexuality, sexbotics, and making philosophy sexier.

Her book Fucking Law: the search for her sexual ethics is out in June 2019 for Zero Books. It can be pre-ordered here: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Fucking-Law-search-sexual-ethics/dp/1789040671

Marc is an academic whose research looks at barristers: he's most interested right now in a project looking at how LGBTQ+ barristers work with their identities and sexualities.

He also used to be a family barrister and is intersted in exploring further the way that law manages to worry really quite a lot about sex.

Cake, hot and soft drinks will be available from the venue. BYO is allowed; corkage applies.
