Talking Research

Erin Shannon is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Education at the University of York in York, England with several years of experience in researching sexual violence in universities. Her Ph.D. research project is a comparative study of university responses to sexual violence in the US and England. In this conversation, we go into her Ph.D. research in detail. We look at how university responses interact with the neoliberal university, preserving reputation and the benefits of comparing response frameworks. Erin explained the issues with a national framework in the US- Title IX and with the lack of a unified framework across English universities and how borrowing of framework ideas can help.

What is Talking Research?

Talking Research features in-depth interviews with prominent academics and researchers who study sexual violence across disciplines. The aim is to make academic knowledge and research on sexual violence accessible. Every other Wednesday, guests talk about their research, their findings, the process, the challenges and everything else in between.
