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

November 10th, 2016 · Comments Off on What Difference Does Community Make? The Role of Restorative Justice in Repairing Harm.

Announcing our next Social Justice Forum!

Thursday, November 17, 2016
noon
International Lounge, Usdan

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.

Join us for a vibrant discussion…and some dessert!  Bring your lunch.

SJF is a collaborative effort of Graduate Student Affairs, the Intercultural Center, the Office of the Chaplaincy, and Library and Technology Services.  To join the planning team, request more information, or to suggest topics, please contact Forum administrator David Wedaman: wedaman@brandeis.edu.

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

October 20th, 2016 · Comments Off on For Students and Not Against Them: On the Use of Safer Spaces & Trigger Warnings

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.
