Event Description:

Samantha Majic’s research lies in gender and American politics, with specific interests in sex work, civic engagement, institutionalism, and the non profit sector. She is the author of Sex Work Politics: From Protest to Service Provision, and the co-editor of Negotiating Sex Work: Unintended Consequences of Policy and Activism. Her research has also appeared/is forthcoming in Perspectives on Politics, Policy, New Political Science, The Journal of Women, Politics and Policy and Gender and Society.

In Sex Work Politics, Samantha Majic investigates the way non-profit organizations negotiate their governmental obligations while maintaining their commitment to outreach and advocacy for sex workers’ rights as well as broader sociopolitical change. Majic comes to a surprising conclusion that it is indeed possible to maintain effective advocacy and key social movement values, beliefs, and practices, even while partnering with governmental values, agencies.
