The Hunting Ground, presented by Dr. Lisa Johnson, Ms. Katie Howe and Safe Homes Rape Crisis Center
Tukey Theater, April 15, 2015, 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The problem of rape as part of the university experience for far too many women is not a new topic, but there is a noticeable push right now to call for new paradigms of accountability, as a number of universities are facing Title IX investigations into whether or not rape and other forms of sexual assault/harassment are being handled properly. Featuring a documentary that premiered at Sundance in 2014, this film screening of The Hunting Ground, cosponsored by the Women Faculty Collective, the Office of Health Education in the Division of Student Affairs and Safe Homes Rape Crisis Coalition brings this conversation to USC Upstate. The film screening will be followed by a brief panel of responses and a Q&A period. For further information, please email Katie Howe or call her at 864-503-5536.
