The Australian Research Council research project,Young People, Sex, Love and Media has invited NSW young people aged 13-17 to talk about where and how they have learned about sex, love and relationships. Participants have also explained how media, including social media, fits into their understanding of themselves and their relationships to others. The project has also investigated the ways that teachers, sexuality educators, health promotion staff and other professionals understand media, and how they are (or are not) able to access training that helps them understand young people’s contemporary media cultures.

It’s become clear to the project’s Chief Investigators Professor Catharine Lumby, Professor Alan McKee and Associate Professor Kath Albury that there are many educators and others who work with young people who are keen to participate in ongoing conversations around the latest research in this field.

You are cordially invited to attend a research workshop, which will be held at Macquarie University on Friday 10th July 2015.

Place: The Faculty of Arts, Building Y3A, Macquarie University, Hadenfeld Avenue, North Ryde, Sydney, NSW.

Time: 10am – 5pm

This is a free event and we would appreciate if you could let us know if you are able to attend, as numbers are limited.
