In SEXUAL CITIZENS: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power, and Assault on Campus, Jennifer S. Hirsch and Shamus Khan lay out an expansive, empirically-grounded vision for campus sexual assault prevention. Hirsch and Khan’s goal, in sharing students’ stories, is not to make moral judgments or decide what the ideal legal ramifications of assault should be. Rather, with empathy and compassion for the many struggles that young people face, they approach sexual assault as a public health problem and explain it by setting out a broader understanding of how sex is organized and what it means to young people in college. Join us to discuss the book and what all community members can do to create a safe and more inclusive campus.
Please note: A limited number of participants will be eligible to receive a free copy of Sexual Citizens in advance of the event on a first come, first served basis.
