Professor Celine Parreñas Shimizu, M.F.A., Ph.D.

Whether uncovering their faces or hiding them, Asian American men use the power
of intimate internet industries, the online production and consumption of the body, in
order to achieve a kind of visual proximity that crosses the distance of their usual
otherness. In their use of porn and explicit imagery, porn star Keni Styles and
videomaker/ scholar Nguyen Tan Hoang combine pleasure and politics so as to
critique the limits placed on their sexual choices and opportunities.

Three lucky attendees will receive a free autographed copy of
The Feminist Porn Book and Straitjacket Sexualities
