Join us, a light lunch will be served!  

We know sexual violence is a problem on university campuses across Canada, and we know that feminist approaches to sexual violence are best practice in the field. But can we bring the two together? Based on knowledge produced through collective activism and community-directed research, this talk will explore the tensions and points of connection between feminist expertise about sexual violence and its application inside of post-secondary institutions. In addition to outlining key challenges encountered in this work, Dr. Godderis will discuss innovative solutions that are currently being piloted at Laurier that connect the university with feminist organizations in the broader community.
