[SEPTEMBER 29] Manon Garcia talk on The Joy of Consent

Friday, September 29
10:30-12:00 ET
909 Renaissance Park

Join us for a public lecture by Manon Garcia (Freie Universität, Berlin) about her new book The Joy of Consent: A Philosophy of Good Sex (Harvard University Press, 2023). 

Event co-sponsored by the Department of Philosophy and Religion, the PPE Program, and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.

From the publisher: “Garcia offers an alternative framework grounded in commitments to autonomy and dignity. While consent, she argues, should not be a definitive legal test, it is essential to realizing intimate desire, free from patriarchal domination. Cultivating consent makes sex sexy. By appreciating consent as the way toward an ethical sexual flourishing rather than a legal litmus test, Garcia adds a fresh voice to the struggle for freedom, equality, and security from sexist violence.”
