Sexual Citizens: Author Book Discussion
Sexual Citizens: A Conversation with the Authors - Moderated by Dr. Kimberly Hamlin

Speakers:
Jennifer Hirsch is a Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health. Shamus Khan is a Professor of Sociology and American Studies at Princeton University. Together they are co-authors of 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 Jennifer and clinical psychologist Claude Ann Mellins, which was profiled by Jia Tolentino in the New Yorker in February of 2018. A recent review in Science described Sexual Citizens as “profoundly eye-opening”, and the book was listed as one of NPR’s best books of 2020.

Moderator:
Dr. Kimberly Hamlin, Professor of History, writes and teaches about the history of women, sex, and politics. Her new book is Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener. Last fall, Hamlin developed and taught a new course titled #MeToo: A Cultural History.

Presented by the Office of Student Wellness, the Office of Dean of Students, and the Dennis L. Carson Sexuality Education Studies Center.
