The aim of this inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary conference is to provide an academic platform on which to initiate an open dialogue between academics, professionals and practitioners in the field of human sexuality. We seek to explore the issues that arise when the concepts of “self”, “selves” and “sexualities” interplay with each other.

This conference is organized by colleagues from both the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies (SALIS) and the School of Nursing (SON) in Dublin City University, Ireland.

We invite abstracts and posters related to the above topic from academic fields such as education, comparative studies, business studies, media and communications, law, geography, art, literature, comparative literature, visual studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology, intercultural studies, women studies, gender studies and history. Practitioners from varied professional backgrounds including nurses, teachers, clergy, social workers, counsellors and doctors are also welcome.

Interesting Agenda

Hello,

I work as a nurse and also sexual health educator for teens and young adults, and found the agenda at the meeting to be of interest to me.

Do you publish the minutes or outcomes of the conference anyway to download for free by any chance, no problem if not but just thought
that I would ask.

Kind regards

Helen Marks
