#MeTooPhD: Sexual Harassment in the Academy
February 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
In this presentation, Karen Kelsky will discuss some things I learned from the experience of creating the Sexual Harassment Crowdsource Survey, including the range and scope of sexual harassment in academic settings (including departments, labs, research centers, campuses, academic conferences, etc.), patterns of predation, options for victims, and recommendations to institutions wishing to combat this scourge in the #MeTooPhD moment. I will discuss the profiles of predators that emerged from the survey, common patterns of protection/enabling/silencing of victims by colleagues and administrators, and particular vulnerabilities of women of color and queer/trans women in these contexts.
