thought I would give you an update of the Whoretography going ons.
I got accepted into a PhD at a central London based university, my research will be a continuation of the Whoretography project, I will post further details once I have completed all the required paperwork and whatnot, I am due to commence in January 2018.
Whilst here, in Australia I will be starting work on an academic book - I am designing the cover and will be working with someone who has a very personal connection with sex work. I will be flitting between Melbourne and Adelaide to get this done.
I have been invited to speak at the Stigma, Discrimination and Sex Worker's Rights conference in Wellington on the 22nd of February. Details to follow, if you are in New Zealand, you are more than welcome to attend, it's a free event.
I need to thank the person who donated a Lenovo laptop, it was a massive help for my PhD interview, THANK YOU! and the person who sent me scanner after I mentioned I found some vintage transparencies of sex work, THANK YOU! Also, thank you to the peeps who have donated via GoFundMe and Patreon.
I have added a rejections page to the Whoretography website to highlight all the mainstream places the Whoretography project has been rejected from in my quest for funding.
I am being interviewed by a journalist for an online art and photography publication, this is a wonderful opportunity to take Whoretography out of the sex work and academic community and kick it mainstream.
and on a personal note, I forgot to mention in this blog post that I am archiving and digitising my Dad's photographs, negatives and transparencies from his service Malaya & Vietnam 1963 - 1968 and this includes vintage photographs of Honk Kong. There are 1000s of photographs and I hope to have this finished within 3 months.
