Next semester here at Ohio State, I will be teaching “Sexuality & Violence,” a course in anti-violence advocacy. I have taught the course since I first arrived in 2015, but this will probably be the last time, as unfortunately the center for Sexuality Studies here has been closed. I am just considering how I might be able to remake this as an English course, but I am looking forward nevertheless to teaching it one last time. I am very grateful for all the incredible students that I have worked with, who give me great hope.
If you were here in Wales, I would like to introduce you to my daughter who is Head of Public affairs and Communication for Welsh Womens Aid. I think you would have a lot to talk about! You could look her up and what she’s written about; there’s a short article for Welsh Arts Review, this time last year, I think. She’s passionate about gender issues and domestic violence is the main focus of her work. GwendolynSterk@WelshWomensAid.org.uk Sure she has an email door open.
Good luck with the restructuring of this course. So many possibilities.
