In conversation with Dr. Jen Ashton, Chief Medical Correspondent for ABC News and author of The Self-Care Solution: A Year of Becoming Happier, Healthier, and Fitter--One Month at a Time

A professor of sociomedical sciences at Columbia University, Jennifer S. Hirsch also codirects the school’s Sexual Health Initiative to Foster Transformation (SHIFT), a research project that explored sexual health and sexual assault among undergraduates. Shamus Khan chairs Columbia’s sociology department and codirects SHIFT’s ethnographic team. Hirsch’s books include A Courtship After Marriage: Sexuality and Love in Mexican Transnational Families and The Secret: Love, Marriage, and HIV. Currently the editor of the academic journal Public Culture and a former Time magazine columnist, Khan is the author of Privilege: The Making of an Adolescent Elite at St. Paul’s School. Built upon years of research, interviews, and observation, Sexual Citizens delves into the question of why sexual assault is so ubiquitous on college campuses.
