Comments about the “Twighlight” series in this newsletter were very interesting….
So far I’ve only had a chance to look at the Schroer, which I strongly recommend. I think a lot of people tend to look at harassment and discrimination both in very individualistic terms. As Schroer argues, the present setting in a university can make a huge difference to how we conceptualize such things and our approaches to them.
