The crisis of campus sexual violence : critical perspectives on prevention and response / by Wooten, Sara Carrigan,editor.; Mitchell, Roland(Roland W.),editor.;
Includes bibliographical references and index."Although awareness of campus sexual assault is at a historic high, institutional responses to incidents of sexual violence remain widely varied. The Crisis of Campus Sexual Violence provides higher education scholars, administrators, and practitioners with a necessary and more holistic understanding of the challenges that colleges and universities face in implementing adequate and effective sexual assault prevention and response practices. In this volume, a diverse mix of expert contributors provide a critical, nuanced, and timely examination of some of the factors that inhibit effective prevention and response in higher education. Chapter authors take on one of the most troubling aspects of higher education today, bridging theory and practice to offer programmatic interventions and solutions to help institutions address their own competing interests and institutional culture to improve their practices and policies with regard to sexual violence"--Back cover.

The social dynamics of family violence / by Hattery, Angela.; Smith, Earl,1946-author.;
"This compelling text explores family violence throughout the life course, from child abuse and neglect to intimate partner violence and elder abuse. Paying special attention to the social character and institutional causes of family violence, Hattery and Smith ask students to consider how social inequality, especially gender inequality, contributes to tensions and explosive tendencies in family settings. Students learn about individual preventative measures and are also invited to question the justice of our current social structure, with implications for social policy and reorganization. The second edition features a new chapter focusing on institutionalized violence affecting families of the military and police, as well as a discussion on sports and sexual abuse cases occurring on college campuses. Hattery and Smith also examine violence against women globally and relate this to violence in the United States. Unique coverage of same-sex and multicultural couples, as well as of theory and methods, make this text an essential element of any course considering the sociology of family violence"--Includes bibliographical references and index.

Campus sexual assault : college women respond / by Germain, Lauren J.,1983-;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 117-122) and index.What we don't know about campus sexual assault -- The paradox of embodied agency -- Managing identity -- Telling friends and family -- Seeking justice -- The beautiful process of empowerment -- Agency and campus sexual assault : the way forward.A 2014 report issued by the White House Council on Women and Girls included the alarming statistic that one in five female college students in the United States experience some form of campus sexual assault. Despite more than fifty years of anti-rape activism and over two decades of federal legislation regarding campus sexual violence, sexual assault on American college and university campuses remains prevalent, under-reported, and poorly understood. A principle reason for this lack of understanding is that the voices of women who have experienced campus sexual assault have been largely absent from academic discourse about the issue. In Campus Sexual Assault, Lauren J. Germain focuses attention on the post-sexual assault experiences of twenty-six college women. She reframes conversations about sexual violence and student agency on American college campuses by drawing insight directly from the stories of how survivors responded individually to attacks, as well as how and why peers, family members, and school, medical, and civil authorities were (or were not) engaged in addressing the crimes. Germain weaves together women's narratives to show the women not as victims per se, but as individuals with the power to overcome these traumatic experiences. Aimed at students, parents, faculty members, university leaders, service providers, and lawmakers, Campus Sexual Assault seeks to put an end to the silence around sexual trauma by giving voice to those closest to it and providing tools for others to hear with-and to act on. -- Provided by publisher.

"The events of October" : murder-suicide on a small campus / by Griffin, Gail B.;
Includes bibliographical references.Prologue: October 18, 1999 -- Fair Arcadian Hill -- Millennium girl -- Wounded bird -- So scared and so lost -- Homecoming -- This endless night -- Hold fast -- Fault lines -- Another sad chapter -- All survivors are victims -- The why of everything -- Conclusion: hauntings and visitations."Griffin's astute analysis of a 1999 murder and suicide on the Kalamazoo College campus probes the links between intimate violence and larger cultural patterns, offering educators, students, and parents a map for change. Vital and disturbing, T̀he Events of October' unpacks the devastating implications of the narratives we still tell ourselves about gender, love, and power."--Joy Castro, author of The Truth Book: A Memoir."The Events of October" powerfully accomplishes what the media fails to do in the wake of violence on college campuses: lends meaning to actions that would otherwise remain inscrutable. Griffin's book is a compelling personal reaction to a tragic event, which is supplemented with research and interviews. The result is a comprehensive and rigorous exploration of violence against women. Ezra Pound once noted that l̀iterature is news that stays news.' T̀he Events of October' embodies exactly that kind of staying power.--Sue William Silverman, author of Fearless Confessions: A Writer's Guide to Memoir.On a Sunday Night During Homecoming weekend in 1999, Neenef Odah lured his ex-girlfriend, Maggie Wardle, to his dorm room at Kalamazoo College and killed her at close range with a shotgun before killing himself. In "The Events of October," author and Kalamazoo College professor Gail Griffin attempts to answer the lingering question of "how could this happen?" and uses Maggie and Neenef's story to explore larger issues of intimate partner violence, gun accessibility, and depression and suicide on campus. --Book Jacket.

American hookup : the new culture of sex on campus / by Wade, Lisa.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Introduction: The new culture of sex -- Hooking up, a how-to -- How sex became fun -- Sex in drunkworld -- Opting out -- Opting in -- Careless and carefree -- Unequal pleasures -- Wanting to be wanted -- Flirting with danger -- Moving on -- Conclusion: Changing the culture."The hookup is now part of college life. Yet the drunken encounter we always hear about tells only a fraction of the story. Rising above misinformation and moralizing, Lisa Wade offers the definitive account of this new sexual culture and demonstrates that the truth is both more heartening and more harrowing than we thought. Offering invaluable insights for parents, educators, and students, Wade situates hookup culture within the history of sexuality, the evolution of higher education, and the unfinished feminist revolution. Using new research, she maps out a punishing emotional landscape marked by unequal pleasures, competition for status, and sexual violence. She discovers that the most privileged students tend to like hookup culture the most, and she considers its effects on racial and sexual minorities, students who "opt out," and those who participate ambivalently. Accessible and open-minded, compassionate and brutally honest, American Hookup explains where we are and how we got here, asking not 'How do we go back?' but 'Where do we go from here?'"--Jacket.
