What Difference Does Community Make? The Role of Restorative Justice in Repairing Harm.

Speakers:
Monique Pillow Gnanaratnam, Assistant Dean, Student Life
Sheila McMahon, PhD, Director, Sexual Assault Services and Prevention

Description:
Restorative Justice is a process that repairs harm and addresses needs before, during, or after incidents of harm have occurred in campus. RJ circles balance support and accountability in order to ensure that outcomes are meaningful for those who have experienced the harm.

For Students and Not Against Them: On the Use of Safer Spaces & Trigger Warnings

October 20th, 2016 · No Comments

Announcing our next Social Justice Forum!

 

For Students and Not Against Them: On the Use of Safer Spaces & Trigger Warnings

 

Friday, October 28, 2016, noon
Intercultural Center Lounge

SJF 2 Flyer v2 2016

Speaker: Kerey Luis, Anthropology and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies

 

Description: Contrary to the belief of certain reactionary people shouting at the Internet, trigger warnings and other attempts to make campus safer places are not forms of “coddling.”  Content warnings have been in use for centuries, from marked books in the Vatican and Bodelian libraries (unavailable to junior or female researchers) to film ratings. The difference now is that we expect people to take charge of their own ability to handle content, rather than withholding it due to some dubious form of authority. This is the opposite of coddling, and perhaps that’s what certain people are upset about — students getting to decide.
Join us for a vibrant discussion…and some dessert!  Bring your lunch.
