ECREA is happy to inform you that the Gender and Communication Thematic Section has changed the name to Gender, Sexuality and Communication. Management team believes that this name will represent the true spirit of the section as it evolves in the last years.
"Our section aim is to be an inclusive group that works on communication using a particular lens (and sensibility) that comes from gender studies. Sexuality studies, as well as porn studies and the other fields connected to gender and sexuality, now, are intrinsically contained within the label Gender, but we think that it could be better to express that the sections have a broader view about the field also inserting the term ‘Sexuality’. From our point of view, this kind of change will permit to more scholars to identify themselves with the section and will express that Gender and Sexuality are both important topics that the section wants to use as pillars in its structure."
