Bond Law seminar examines sexual ethics and consent

Professor Robin West of Georgetown University, Washington DC, will present Bond University’s next Twilight Seminar, July 28, examining the issue of sexual ethics and consent.

The Bond Faculty of Law’s Twilight Seminar Series celebrates and disseminates the world-class expertise of its academics and visiting scholars by providing the opportunity to present their latest work in a public forum.

Professor West is the Frederick J. Haas Professor of Law and Philosophy at Georgetown University, and has taught at the University of Maryland Law School, the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University and been a visiting professor at the University of Chicago and Stanford law schools.

She has written extensively on gender issues and feminist legal theory, constitutional law and theory, jurisprudence, legal philosophy and law and literature.

Professor West says her presentation on sexual ethics and consent will explore some of the harms, both psychological and political, of consensual sex that is not mutually wanted, desired or welcomed by both or all partners.

“The seminar will look at why these harms, which may be widespread and are not readily subject to legal control or compensation, are so difficult to see within the political logic of liberal legalism, as well as both radical and liberal feminism,” she said.
