Mariah Larsson is Professor of Film Studies at Linnaeus University, Sweden and the author of The Swedish Porn Scene: Exhibition Contexts, 8mm Pornography and the Sex Film (2017).

Swedish Perspectives on Porn
Mariah Larsson’s research has concerned the history of pornographic film in Sweden and in her presentation, she will focus on a relatively recent shift in the public discourse on pornography towards a construction of pornography as a public health hazard. This shift will be situated in a national and historical context of the Scandinavian welfare state and its relationship to sexually explicit material since the late 1960s.
