Café Scientifique: Sex, Lies, and the Media: The Sexualisation of Everyday Life
Moderated by Dr. Sarah Wilner Professor of Marketing and Consumer Behaviour Wilfrid Laurier University

Dr. Tracy Penny-Light, Associate Professor University of Waterloo
What Does the Media Teach Us About Sexuality and Our Roles in Society Today?
What questions should we be asking about what we see?  This talk draws on historical and contemporary research on sexuality and the media to explore the messages about sexuality that are presented to us.  We will consider the implications of accepting the "lies" about sexuality that we are all exposed to everyday and discuss some ways to be critical consumers of this messaging. 

Dr. Carla Rice, Associate Professor, Trent University
Erin Watson, PhD Student, Trent University

The Search for Sexual Empowerment in an Era of Sexualisation
Are all girls and women affected by sexualized images in the same way? Do these images sometimes satisfy their needs and desires? In this talk, we examine the dilemmas that diverse girls and women face in finding sexual empowerment in a culture of sexualisation. We consider how we can take seriously concerns around sexualisation without denying girls' sexuality.
