Beyond The Gaze project launched

beyond-the-gazeBeyond the Gaze: The working practices, regulation and safety of Internet-based sex work in the UK is a three year research project in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. The project is led by Professor Teela Sanders, with Jane Scoular and Rosie Campbell.

The aims of the project include:

  • understanding the wider theoretical significance of new technologies for changing the social practice of sexual consumption and the sex industry.
  • mapping the trends and understanding the working practices in Internet-based sex work markets within the broader processes of the regulation and policing of sex work in the UK.
  • facilitating the integration of Internet-based sex work into safety and health-related provision, policies and agencies.

Teela Sanders, Jane Scoular and Rosie Campbell give a short (6 minute) outline of the project in this video.
