In Their Own Words

"For me, as a scholar working on the history of sexual ethics, the real question wasn't "What happened then?" but "How does what happened then influence what happens now?" John Witte's invitation to join his project on sex, marriage, and family created the perfect moment for me, because I was ready to enter a much broader conversation about contemporary debates -- legal, political, sociological, medical -- and to connect with what other scholars were doing."
