The panel focus on the performance and regulation of gender and sexualities on the Internet, and with personal electronic devices, and the panellists will discuss issues concerning accessibility of information about sexuality, online sociability, and political organizing around sexual rights, as well as public debates and legal initiatives which mobilize the idea of “harmful content” and the tutelage of vulnerable subjects. The session seeks to fill the gap about actual online activity and State regulation with empirical data about how individuals and groups use new media and digital platforms, and interventions by political players.
