Celebrating the publication of The Feminist Porn Book: The Politics of Producing Pleasure (The Feminist Press, 2013), a co-edited volume produced by three UC Santa Barbara professors—Constance Penley, Mireille Miller-Young, and Celine Parreñas Shimizu, who together constitute the hub of sex industry research in the western United States, and author/filmmaker Tristan Taormino, this ground-breaking event -- the first of its kind on a United States college campus -- will showcase the new movement of feminist and queer pornography that is transforming today’s adult entertainment industry.
