'Guy candy’, desire and the future of romance

'Guy candy’, desire and the future of romance

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 12th Feb 2019

TubeCrush is a website that allows users to post secretly taken photos of ‘guy candy’ they see on the tube. While the site was established to pay homage to men, the practice raises moral questions about privacy, consent and objectification. Drawing on her new research, Adrienne Evans delves into the complex world of modern desires.

This event will include a chance to experiment on an app designed by Samantha Clarke, Coventry University. Information on how to download the app to your smartphone will be provided at the event. A limited number of ipads will be available for those without access to a smartphone.

Speaker:
Dr Adrienne Evans, Reader in Media, Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Coventry University

Dr Adrienne Evans is a British Academy / Leverhulme Small Research Grant holder for her project TubeCrush as Connected Intimacies: A Qualitative Analysis of Gender, Workplace and Contemporary Urban Space.

Cost: £5
