Campus Sex, Campus Security

By Jennifer Doyle

 
The management of sexuality has been sewn into the campus. Sex has its own administrative unit. It is a bureaucratic progression.

—from Campus Sex, Campus Security

The psychic life of the university campus is ugly. The idyllic green quad is framed by paranoid cops and an anxious risk-management team. A student is beaten, another is soaked with pepper spray. A professor is thrown to the ground and arrested, charged with felony assault. As the campus is fiscally strip-mined, the country is seized by a crisis of conscience: the student makes headlines now as rape victim and rapist. An administrator writes a report. The crisis is managed.
