The Centre for Intimate and Sexual Citizenship (CISC) symposium will explore 'toxic digital intimacies', or instances of technologically mediated harm. It is concerned with the questions of how gender and sexuality are regulated and targeted within these contexts, as well as moments of resistance.

Topics covered will include; revenge porn, sexual harassment and online dating, homophobic harassment online, sexism in digital cultures, and critical intersectionalities.

The symposium will help develop networks and research questions that will be used to inform the development of a funding proposal. 

The seminar is part of an open seminar, hosted by Dr Roisin Ryan-Flood from the Department of Sociology
