NEW BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT
Beyond the Rapist: Title IX and Sexual Violence on US Campuses
by Kate Lockwood Harris
Oxford University Press, 2019
available in hardcover, paperback, and ebook
Oxford University Press is pleased to announce the publication of a new title. In Beyond the Rapist, Kate Lockwood Harris considers how the relationships among organization, communication, and violence inform university responses to sexual assault. Drawing upon feminist new materialist theory and method, Harris shows how complex physical and symbolic components of rape are embedded in organizations and applies this thinking to mandated reporting policies at a university known for its Title IX processes.
In so doing, she suggests that combatting the epidemic of sexual violence on college campuses requires linking sexual violence to systemic injustices and refining definitions of violence to encompass far more than individual, physical injuries.
The book is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in communication, management, feminist studies, and higher education policy. It will also be useful for scholars engaging with new materialisms.
