The Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (EGSH) has invited The Actor Society (Het Acteursgenootschap) to re-enact cases of harassment in academia, all based on real life experiences at EUR and other universities. After the play, PhD candidates, academic and support staff will discuss what you can do if you find yourself, your colleagues or members of your team in such situations.
The Learning Curve is a play which shows different gradations of harassment and also explores the individual and institutional responses that are possible and desirable.
