Join us for a symposium on the edited collection Me Too, Feminist Theory, and Surviving Sexual Violence in the Academy (Lexington Books, 2020). Edited by Professor Laura Gray-Rosendale, the volume "collects a range of perspectives from sexual assault survivors with backgrounds in academia. The contributors in this collection connect their experiences of sexual violence to their research and work within the academy as well as their lives outside of it."
At noon, there will be a keynote talk by Professor Gray-Rosendale, titled "We Too: Survivorship, Personal Narrative, and the Collective Challenge to Violence, Power, and Privilege.” This talk will be on zoom.
