Book Launch: Shereen El-Feki ‘Sex and the Citadel’

March 12, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Book Launch: Shereen El-Feki 'Sex and the Citadel'

The author discusses "Sex and the Citadel," her book linking sexuality to political, economic, social and religious trends in the rapidly changing Arab World. “Sex might seem a strange lens through which to examine change, but it is a prism that refracts the region’s complex social spectrum, from religion and culture to politics and economics,” she writes. “Sexual attitudes and behaviors not only are a reflection of the conditions that led to the recent uprisings but will be a measure of the hard-won reforms in years to come.” Feki is a writer, broadcaster and academic whose work has appeared in The Economist, Huffington Post and Prospect. She is vice-chair of the U.N. Global Commission on HIV and Law. Community Room

Regan Hofmann, an internationally recognized authority on HIV/AIDS and a consultant focused on strategy and communications designed to bring positive change for global health will join the discussion and lead a post discussion Q&A.
