Well, the details are up on the QLD Office for Women website about the Ideas Festival in Brisbane. I’m going to be talking there as part of a panel discussion on a topic entitled ‘Beyond Size 0: Is Anything Real?’.
It’ll be looking at the impact of the media’s representation of women’s bodies and will incorporate emerging technologies, which is where I come in. I’ll be discussing how the virtualization of women’s bodies in technology mirrors much of what we see in other popular media forms and how avatars are often created in an ‘idealized’ way based on societal norms.
If you’d like to find out more about who’s participating in the talk you can check out the Office for Women website here: Ideas Festival – Office for Women.
