'Guy candy’, desire and the future of romance

Book Event →

This event is part of the British Academy's season on Utopia or Dystopia - Imagining Futures

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.

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
