National Magazine Award winner Vanessa Grigoriadis will be joined on stage by local author Claire Dederer for a candid and in-depth discussion on sexual consent on college campuses. A new sexual revolution is sweeping the country and college students are on the front lines. Women use fresh, savvy methods to fight entrenched sexism and sexual assault, even as they celebrate their own sexuality as never before. Many “woke” male students are more sensitive to women’s concerns than previous generations ever were, while other men perpetuate the most cruel misogyny. Amid such apparent contradictions, it’s no surprise that intense confusion shrouds the topic of sex on campus.

In an unprecedented investigation, Vanessa Grigoriadis dispels that confusion with Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus. She traveled to schools large and small, embedding in their social whirl, and talking candidly with students, administrators, parents, and researchers to reveal a host of surprising truths. Offering convincing, if controversial, advice on how schools, students, and parents can make college a safer, richer experience, Grigoriadis offers a revelatory account of what’s happening these days and nights on our college campuses.
