Pandora's "Box": Pornography, Sex Work, and Archival Practice

Owner: sarah beth

Group members: 4

Description:

This is a service project for the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives that involves indexing some of their pornographic periodicals, while treating the periodical content as primary material towards my own research on sex worker narratives.

 

I've decided to follow others' examples and use The Landing to try to keep my May-October research course organized. I am determined not to use email for everything and neglect blogging. (In part because my grade depends on not neglecting the blogging.)
