Sex and the City Ten Years On: Landmark Television and its Legacy

Carrie-Bradshaw-tutu
I’m very excited to be speaking on the plenary at the Sex and the City Ten Years On: Landmark Television and its Legacy event on Friday April 4 2014 | 9am–7pm (including drinks reception)at the University of Roehampton, London

Plenary Speakers: Kim Akass, Janet McCabe, Kirsty Fairclough-Isaacs,
Beatriz Oria and Professor Mandy Merck

2014 will mark ten years since the final episode of Sex and the City (HBO 1998–2004) was broadcast. During the programme’s six seasons, and throughout the decade following its finale, Sex and the City has continued to be recognised as one of the most contentious and cherished series in recent television history, having tapped into a zeitgeist consumed by postfeminism
to become a cultural touchstone. Embraced and vilified with unforgettable vehemence by audiences, critics and the media, this conference will explore the ways in which the impact of SATC and its ‘afterlife’ continues to be felt
across popular culture and in a television marketplace that is hugely indebted to the way the series rewrote the boundaries of the medium.

Early bird* rate: £40 | Full rate: £50
Student rate: £20 up until Friday 28 February 2014, £25 thereafter
*Early bird rate is available up until Friday 28 February 2014
Lunch, refreshments and a drinks reception are included in the rate
