This website serves as a hub for Erin Shannon’s Ph.D. thesis project in the Department of Education at University of York, Project CURSV (pronounced “cursive”): Comparing University Responses to Sexual Violence. Through this project, she is attempting to understand the response frameworks that exist in the US and England through a combination of feminist critical discourse analysis/policy discourse analysis and interviews with university staff and student victims/survivors.
This website will not contain any information about individual participants, their interviews, or the institutions that choose to participate in this project. It is intended only as a resource for prospective participants to better understand Project CURSV and keep people up-to-date about conference appearances or other media engagements. All data, including participants’ names, roles/titles, and university names, will be anonymised before it is included in the thesis, and Erin will be the only person able to access personal, non-redacted information.
