Dr. Rébecca S Franco
Rébecca Franco is an interdisciplinary postdoctoral researcher in the project “The Platformization of the Sex Industry” at the Sociology Department of the University of Amsterdam. Her research explores how platformized sex work is regulated and legislated, by analyzing the intertwinement of platform governance and moral politics in structuring the webcam industry. Previously, she completed a PhD dissertation at the VU University on the regulation of interracialized intimacies in the context of migration and decolonization. She published on the saliency of race and racialization in the historical regulation of intimacy and sex work. Her research focus more broadly revolves around the regulation of sex, sex work, and intimacy.
