GW Anthropology alumna Amanda Eller gets article published and Undergraduate Peri Buch awarded Fulbright Scholarship

The article written by Amanda Eller is titled: Transactional sex and sexual harassment between professors and students at an urban university in Benin. It was published in the Culture, Health & Sexuality: An International Journal for Research, Intervention and Care. Eller discusses the relationships between female students and their professors. She analyzes the determination of power and how it affects the professor's ability to determine consent as well as why the professor, in these cases, is perceived as the victim.
