FASSen your seatbelts, The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is coming to CU in the City!
CU in the City is a popular series of talks that shares invigorating FASS research in communities across Ottawa and Canada. The next edition of CU in the City features Drs. Megan Rivers-Moore and Marie-Eve Carrier-Moisan.

What is “sex tourism”? Why do tourists and locals participate? What’s in it for them? What’s love got to do with it? And sex? What about money? And race?

In this joint conversation, Megan Rivers-Moore and Marie-Eve Carrier-Moisan will share stories from their research on sex tourism in Costa Rica and Brazil. They will explore some commonly held ideas about the buying and selling of sex while on vacation, and show that sex tourism is more complicated than what most people think and works out differently in different contexts and locations. By sharing stories and experiences from Brazil and Costa Rica, they hope to shed light on the complex issue of sex tourism.

Join Drs. Megan Rivers-Moore and Marie-Eve Carrier-Moisan on Tuesday March 20, 2018 for an engaging discussion on the complex issue issue of sex tourism.
