All are invited to a talk by Jennifer Hirsch ‘88, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and co-author of the new book Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus.  Hirsch advances a new conceptual language for thinking about the social production of campus sexual assault: sexual projects, sexual geographies, and sexual citizenship. The book argues for an intersectional approach to the multiple forms of power that create the circumstances in which assaults happen. The book is written in dialogue with social science theory about gender, sexuality, and social stratification, and addresses a topic of urgent interest to students, faculty and administrators on college campuses, as well as to the broader public.
