Description

Join us to learn about the harms of pornography through a feminist lens this coming October! This two-day ICESA training will take place at the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis, and will feature Dr. Gail Dines, Dr. Robert Jensen, and Lisa Thompson. Dr. Gail Dines is a professor of sociology and women’s studies at Wheelock College in Boston, as well as an internationally-acclaimed speaker, focusing on hypersexualization of culture and the effects of porn on mainstream pop culture. Dr. Robert Jensenis a professor of journalism at the University of Texas at Austin who has critiqued the pathology of patriarchy and its place in today’s crises. Lisa Thompson is the Vice President of Education and Outreach for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation where she has focused on the harms of pornography, stripping, prostitution, and sex trafficking. We are so excited to be able to bring these three fabulous speakers to Indiana!

This event will also feature two documentary screenings, a panel discussion featuring feminist scholars and experts, and small-group discussions designed for advocates/counselors and prevention specialists. Our two featured documentaries are The Price of Pleasure and Not Just Pictures.

NOTE: Each person must register separately; there is a limit of one ticket per person. This is a free training. Lunch will be on your own. Click to see the full agenda.
