    Mediating sexualities

    The sexual politics of media production and regulation

    This conference will take place at Lille University (France) on Novemebr 3rd and 4th 2020. It aims at building bridges across national and disciplinary contexts by bringing together English and French-speaking scholars who work at the crossroads of media studies and sexuality studies. We call for papers examining the processes through which sexuality is mediated, with special interest in media genres and sectors that may not appear as “sexual” at first sight. Indeed, the queer starting point of this conference is that all media, even those that present as “non-sexual”, are actually actively involved in sexual politics, for instance through the claim of sexual decency. This also implies that all sexualities, even those that present as natural and timeless – starting with heterosexuality –, are actually the product of cultural processes, in which the media play a key role.

    Platforms and their users: video on demand and its audiences

    Ce dossier thématique de Communiquer. Revue de communication sociale et publique propose d’examiner les plateformes numériques de diffusion de contenus audiovisuels à partir de leurs « publics ». En effet, si la tendance à la « plateformisation » de l’organisation des activités économiques au sein des industries culturelles est étudiée depuis plusieurs années par les chercheurs·euses en sciences de l’information et de la communication, c’est l’analyse des modèles d’affaires de ces nouveaux acteurs de la diffusion (souvent à travers la notion d’intermédiation) qui a surtout retenu l’attention. Ce dossier propose d’apporter un éclairage complémentaire aux travaux francophones contemporains (Bélanger et Boisvert, à paraître), grâce à des contributions qui porteront en priorité sur les publics des plateformes numériques de contenus audiovisuels, que ces derniers soient réels, potentiels ou supposés. Trois axes sont ainsi envisagés.
