FALL 2014

The Sex and Power Series

Interactions of sex and power arguably permeate every level of our culture, from gender expectations to sexual orientation to sexual roles and relationships and risks. Despite the prevalence of sexual activity and sexually transmitted infections, or simply the ubiquity of mixed-gender interactions, conversations of Sex and Power are among those with which we are the least comfortable. The Sex and Power Series aims to provide a safe venue for students to explore their ideas and lived experiences of sex and power.

Free Food For Thought’s Fall 2014 series will synthesize the individual, cultural and social forces at play in the relationship between Sex and Power, and explore new avenues for challenging prevalent notions and patterns.
