Chromik Lightning Talk (2019 Spring Symposium)

Summary
This project examines publicly available statements about sex and sex work in light of the #MeToo movement and in response to the passing of the FOSTA-SESTA. It focuses on the online efforts of sex-work advocates against the passing of the SESTA, and how those efforts affect the public deliberative democratic process, especially with the rise of Democratic Socialist candidates, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who oppose the legislation. I want to consider how coalition building between different activist groups online contributes to new methods of rhetorical invention that can push outward to influence the public process of deliberation.
