  What can a sociological perspective tell us about the social problem of campus sexual assault? This viewpoint addresses challenges to reported statistics regarding the scope of the problem; the social construction of masculinity and femininity; rape-prone versus rape-free campus cultures; sexual consent and coercion; and victim-blaming. In addition to data and theory, this course also includes a praxis or preventative action component, whereby students learn about the bystander effect and how to intervene in such situations. Overall, we consider the strengths and limitations of this prevention model and other sexual assault prevention programs. Classes will incorporate relevant readings, in-class exercises, documentary films, and a guest speaker from Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services.
