Identity, Power, and Sexual Citizenship: A Conversation with Jennifer Hirsch and Shamus Khan

Health, Safety, and Well-being Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention, Education, and Response New Professional Senior Level
May 27, 2020   |  3:00 PM - 4:15 PM Monica Nixon Jennifer S. Hirsch Shamus Khan

Please note: Time zones are listed in Eastern.

Institutions of higher education are legally, and many believe morally, required to prevent and address campus sexual violence. While these efforts are intended to be comprehensive, research presented in the new book Sexual Citizens by Columbia University faculty Jennifer Hirsch and Shamus Khan demonstrates the potential power of centering racial justice to create campuses with less sexual violence for all students. NASPA’s Monica Nixon, Assistant Vice President for Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice, will facilitate a conversation with the authors, who co-directed the ethnographic research component of Columbia’s Sexual Health Initiative to Foster Transformation (SHIFT) project, about identity, power, and sexual citizenship. This session will explore the ideas of social and sexual geography and lift up how the inclusion of an equity, inclusion, and social justice lens is vital in our approach to this topic. 

Presented by Culture of Respect and open to all.
