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