Unwanted Advances
256 pages; Harper
In the wake of her controversial and nearly career-killing article, "Sexual Paranoia Strikes Academe," Laura Kipnis revisits consent on campus in a take-no-prisoners critique, Unwanted Advances. On the surface, the story of two female students who've accused their professor of sexual harassment seems a straightforward example of a man abusing his power. But Kipnis uses court transcripts, police reports, and text messages to produce a riveting true-life tale that brings nuance to one of the more fraught conversations on campus.
