SOC 188: One in Five: The Law, Politics, and Policy of Campus Sexual Assault (FEMGEN 143, SOC 288)

CW: SA/GBV: Access the Application Consent Form Here: https://bit.ly/One-in-Five-Application Over the past decade, the issue of campus sexual assault and harassment has exploded into the public discourse. Multiple studies have reinforced the finding that between 20-25% of college women (and a similar proportion of students identifying as transgender and gender-nonconforming, as well as approximately 10% of male students) experience sexual assault carried out through force or while the victim was incapacitated. This course delves into the complex issues of sexual assault and harassment on college campuses, examining legal, policy, and political dimensions. We explore the prevalence of these issues, the historical and social contexts, and relevant laws such as Title IX and the Clery Act.

We explore the prevalence of these issues, the historical and social contexts, and relevant laws such as Title IX and the Clery Act. Through readings spanning social science, history, literature, law, health, and journalism, we analyze responses to campus violence, considering the intersectionality of race, class, gender, and other factors. Guest speakers, including experts and advocates, provide firsthand insights. Sensitive Material: The subject matter of this course is sensitive, and students are expected to treat the material with maturity. Much of the reading and subject matter may be upsetting and/or triggering for students who identify as survivors. This course has no therapeutic component, although supportive campus resources are available for those who need them. Elements used in grading: Grades will be based on class attendance, in-person class participation, and either several short reflection papers and a class presentation (Law section 01) or an independent research paper and class presentation, or a project and class presentation (undergraduates, graduates, and Law section 02). After the term begins, law students accepted into the course can transfer from section 01 into section 02, which meets the R requirement, with consent of the instructor. Enrollment: Requires INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION. Application consent forms are available (https://bit.ly/One-in-Five-Application) or you may contact Professor Burgart at aburgart@stanford.edu. Cross-listed with Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies ( FEMGEN 143) and Sociology ( SOC 188/288). Apply early as demand is high and enrollment is limited to 18 students. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the class is full.
