Based on a study Rothman conducted among high school students in 2016, the talk will explore how, in the absence of comprehensive sex education, pornography is shaping ideas about pleasure, intimacy, and power among teens. Register for this presentation by Emily Rothman, ScD of Boston University School of Public Health. 

 

Emily F. Rothman, ScD, is a Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health with secondary appointments at the Boston University School of Medicine in Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine. She is also a visiting scientist at the Harvard Injury Control Research Center. Dr. Rothman has authored more than 80 publications that span the areas of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, firearm violence, and pornography. She has been a PI or coinvestigator on numerous NIH and NIJ research grants and worked closely with multiple state sexual assault and domestic violence coalitions, state health departments, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on issues related to sexual assault prevention.
