Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power, and Assault on Campus


Monday, May 10, 2021


5:30 pm


Main Building Virtual Room 1

Join Jennifer Hirsch, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, and Shamus Khan, Professor of Sociology and American Studies at Princeton University, for a panel conversation on their book, Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus, published by WW Norton.

That work was realized as part of Columbia’s Sexual Health Initiative to Foster Transformation, or SHIFT, co-directed by Professor Hirsch and clinical psychologist Claude Ann Mellins, which was profiled by Jia Tolentino in the New Yorker in February of 2018. A review in Science described Sexual Citizens as “profoundly eye-opening,” and the book was listed as one of NPR’s best books of 2020.

All members of the Vassar community are invited to this special event.

RSVP here for a link to the webinar:

Note: the first 100 students to RSVP will get a free copy of the book, as well as a grab-and-go meal.

Sponsored by the SAVP Office, Office of Health Promotion and Education, First Year Experience, Community Care Team, and Student Growth and Engagement.
