The "Blurred Lines" Of Sexuality On Campus

Vicki Nunn, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=12075956

Vanessa Grigoriadis went back to college.  But not to take classes; to talk to students and observe the culture, with a particular focus on sexuality and sexual assault. 

Sexual assault appears to be epidemic, if you focus on the major news stories.  And the ways in which people relate to each other have changed greatly in the age of social media and ubiquitous cellphones. 

Grigoriadis wrote her findings in Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus.  She joins us with some surprising details of her time back on campus.
