Author Biography

João Florêncio, University of Exeter

João Florêncio is Senior Lecturer in History of Modern and Contemporary Art and Visual Culture at the University of Exeter. His interdisciplinary research navigates the intersections of visual culture with queer theory, performance studies, and the medical and post-humanities in order to think the production and mediations of embodied subjectivities in contemporary culture. As a Leadership Fellow of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (2019-21), he has been investigating the ways in which the introduction of antiretroviral therapies for the management and prophylaxis of HIV infection have facilitated the development of new forms of sexual behavior, sexual subjectivity, and masculinity amongst gay men, which are in turn being mediated by twenty-first century sex media. That project led to his monograph Bareback Porn, Porous Masculinities, Queer Futures: The Ethics of Becoming-Pig (Routledge, 2020).
