Hot and Bothered: Tackling Sexual Harassment and Assault in Higher Education

The Feminist Art Project CAA Affiliated Society Session
Chairs: Anonda Bell (Rutgers University - Newark) and Connie Tell (Rutgers University - New Brunswick)

Attending or working in a place of higher learning comes with inherent dangers - 40% of female identified faculty and 30% of female identified staff experience sexual harassment, and one in five women are assaulted while attending college. How have artists, feminist scholars, and academics responded to this phenomenon? The Feminist Art Project seeks a wide array of proposals with possible topics to include: artists' strategies for effective response; how gender stereotypes and representation fuel the phenomenon; how feminists can challenge and change a culture that normalizes harassment and toxic "rape culture"; the physiological effects of harassment; formal reporting strategies - does the system work; backlash and repercussions in the academy. Proposals with images are preferred for this panel.
