As a part of the GESIS lecture series, the Centre of Excellence Women and Science will hold a double colloquium on the topic “Sexual harassment and sexualised violence in academia”.
Two lectures will be given. First, Alice Farneti will speak on the topic “the movement against sexual violence on campus in Montreal universities”, which looks at the conflicts between activists and the academic administration surrounding a recent law passed to prevent and fight sexual violence in institutions of higher education.
Then Dr. Lisa Mense and Dr. Heike Mauer will give their talk “Activities against sexual harassment and gender-based violence in higher education. An analysis of guidelines in NRW”, which analyses the guidelines against sexual harassment and gender-based violence and provides insight into how institutions of higher education frame these problems.
The event will also be live-streamed here.
