FAME presents a lecture by Dr. Jackie Dugard
FAME is proud to present their first event with a lecture from Dr. Jackie Dugard (Witwatersrand University South Africa). On Tuesday 29 May, Dr. Dugard will give a lecture on: ‘The dilemmas and complexities of dealing with Gender-Based Harm on Campus.’
Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg has faced immense challenges of both racialised violence and gender violence. Global developments such as #MeToo and Time’s Up indicate that sexual harassment is high on the agenda. Also in the academic context people unfortunately have to deal with different forms of harassment, academic harassment being the latest trend where more attention is drawn to.
