Irene Pelayo and Anders Marklund organize a research seminar entitled 'Romance, remix and shared queer identities in YouTube fan videos' at Lund University, Department of Gender Studies. This interesting event will gather researchers from various disciplines: gender studies, film studies, media studies etc. - amongst others, Susanna Paarsonen (one of the editors of the book Pornification: Sex and Sexuality in Media Culture (2007) Oxford New York: Berg, and author of the book Carnal resonance affect and online pornography.

My presentation at this workshop is entitled 'YouTube: Narcissus' mirror or heterotopia?', and will speak about the amateur culture on YouTube, on the trace of McLuhan's statement that 'the [human] agent is the function in the reproduction cycle of machines - sexual organ of the world of machines'. How do we reflect ourselves in this heterotopia?
