HOT AND BOTHERED: Tackling Sexual Harassment and Assault in Higher Education
| TFAP CAA Affiliated Society Session


Session Abstract:

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 female identified students are assaulted while attending college. This panel will present artists, feminist scholars, and academics who have responded to this phenomenon. Topics will include: artists’ strategies for effective response; how gender stereotypes and representation fuel the phenomenon; how feminists can challenge and change a culture which normalizes harassment and toxic “rape culture”; the physiological effects of harassment; formal reporting strategies - does the system work; backlash and repercussions in the academy.


Session Chairs: Anonda Bell, Paul Robeson Galleries; Express Newark, Rutgers University, and Connie Tell, The Feminist Art Project, Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities, Rutgers University.
