Featuring: Maria Filomena Gregori (Professora de Antropologia na Universidade Estadual de Campinas, e pesquisadora-visitante da Columbia University) and Debatedor: Dylon Robbins (Assistant Professor no departamento de Spanish and Portuguese na NYU)

A palestra versará sobre diferentes experiências presentes nos erotismos contemporâneos, nas articulações entre práticas sexuais, normas de gênero e limites da sexualidade. Nesses espaços e zonas fronteiriças habitam norma e transgressão, consentimento e abuso, prazer e dor. As novas expressões do mercado erótico contemporâneo ensejam a análise de processos sociais complexos, relativos à ampliação ou à restrição de normatividades sexuais, e a observação de padrões de tolerância associados a novas normas sociais.
