About This Event

"Paradigm Shifts in Sexuality" - Universities across the nation have recently adopted new policies in an effort to stem sexual assault on college campuses. The most radical approach involves setting new standards for sexual consent that establish a normative standard for meaningful sexual relationships. This move establishes third party oversight of personal sexual relationships, which represents a significant paradigm shift in the Western conception of romance for the last 800 years. The presentation suggests that the contemporary trend signifies a retreat to classical conceptions of marriage and contractual sexual relations, objectified and authorized by third party authority.  

Named after Armstrong alumnus and Professor of English Emeritus Robert I. Strozier, the annual Faculty Lecture Series features the research of Armstrong professors across the disciplines. 

This event is free and open to the public.
