Elizabeth A. Armstrong: "University Management of Sexual Violence."

Professor Elizabeth A. Armstrong, University of Michigan, Sociology, will introduce her ongoing research on university management of sexual violence, including her collaborate work on responses to sexual violence at 381 American universities.  Drawing on the work of intersectional feminists, she views sexual violence as a cause and consequence of multiple forms of inequality. University management of sexual violence is consequential for the production of societal inequalities more generally, since universities currently create contexts in which sexual violence is a predictable result and serve as hubs connecting all parties of societies.

Guest speaker Elizabeth A. Armstrong is Professor of Sociology & Organizational Behavior, University of Michigan, and a 2018-19 Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford.
