Queering 1968: Erotic Photography and the Visual History of the Sexual Revolution

Queering 1968: Erotic Photography and the Visual History of the Sexual Revolution

Conférence par Jennifer Evans, Professeure au Department of History, Carleton University.

In this paper, I explore the relationship between photography and changing sexual norms and practices in the period we have come to understand as the Sexual Revolution. I ask, what role do images play in how people increasingly came to understand themselves, their desires, and their relationship to wider society? And how did certain city subcultures, already in the 1950s and early 1960s, create a foundation for what would be taken up by the various social movements of the later half of the decade for greater sexual freedom, experimentation, and new ways of thinking about our bodies and our selves?
