Book launch: Dr. Avgi Saketopoulou presents 
Sexuality Beyond Consent: Risk, Race, Traumatophilia 
In conversation with Dr. Tavia Nyong'o and Amber Jamilla Musser

Avgi Saketopoulou, a queer, NYC-based psychoanalyst and faculty member of NYU's Postdoc Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, joins us on our virtual events stage to present her latest work. Her new book, Sexuality Beyond Consent: Risk, Race, Traumatophilia, is an analysis of our culture's hyper-focus on healing sexual trauma that raises the need to reroute our attention to what subjects do with their trauma. Moving between clinical and cultural case studies, Saketopoulou takes up theatrical and cinematic works such as Slave Play and The Night Porter to demonstrate how the force of the erotic surges through aesthetic domains. Dr. Tavia Nyong'o (Afro-Fabulations: The Queer Drama of Black Life) and Amber Jamilla Musser (Sensual Excess: Queer Femininity and Brown Jouissance) join Saketopoulou for a thought-provoking evening with a reading, discussion, and Q&A.
