I have worked with a number of organisations on anti-violence advocacy projects including:
- Advocates of Women of the World;
- It’s On Us;
- Proyecto Mariposas;
- the American Medical Women’s Association;
- and the Ohio State University Office of Student Life.
I am currently faculty advisor for It’s On Us at the Ohio State University.
Anti-violence Advocacy Student Work Exhibit
This exhibit was curated by Zoë Brigley Thompson, Geren Heurtin, and Jennifer Schnabel. For the spring 2019 class of Sexuality Studies 5620, students produced their own public service announcements (PSAs): texts that promote a particular message for the public good. The students chose an anti-violence cause that they thought was important, and they created an array of different PSAs, finding creative and thoughtful ways to present their message. Special thanks to the Ohio State University librarians Jennifer Schnabel, Jolie Braun, Kevlin Haire, and Tamar Chute for visits to the archive which inspired these projects. Many of the students have generously donated their work to the University Archives, where the material will be made available to researchers, students and others interested in the history of student activism at OSU. For more information about University Archives, visit go.osu.edu/archives.
During International Women’s Month, March 2018, I spoke at a Heforshe event at the Ohio State University campus on the subject of #metoo and #timesup. [Read the speech here.]
Reading Lists After Sexual Trauma
Reading is an activity that can foster imagination and empowerment. One current project is creating resources for post-traumatic contexts. In creating this list, I must add my thanks to services at the Ohio State University for invaluable advice.
