“When We Speak: Sex, Power, and the #MeToo Movement”
How does power affect gender roles and sexual behavior in public and private spaces? Who has power, who does not, and how is it leveraged? Perhaps the clearest manifestation of these questions is the unprecedented entry into public view of the accounts of sexual coercion, harassment, and assault. Reports from government, media, education, service and domestic sectors, and many other fields have ignited a broad-ranging debate about the politics of sexuality in structurally unequal relationships. There has also been clamorous backlash, pointing to the ambiguity of intimacy and condemning so-called media trials and the disregard of due process. How does this debate challenge our inherited notions of desire, power and justice? This conference will trace the histories of this question, report on the current state of the #MeToo movement and look toward imagining ways of creating lasting cultural change.
Sociology Professor Mike Johnson will present “Student Perceptions of Crime and Criminal Justice: Knowledge or Social Identity?”.
