Talking Research Podcast

Talking Research is a new podcast hosted by Asmita Sood that aims to make academic research on sexual violence accessible to a non-specialist audience. Asmita interviewed Erin about Project CURSV and some of her initial thesis findings. You can listen to the episode here; it’s also available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Student Recruitment: American Colleges & Universities

Project CURSV is recruiting current students who have experienced sexual harassment or sexual violence at universities based in the US for 1 hour interviews via Skype. These interviews will focus on what it was like to tell your university (or another party) about your experience of violence, what channels you reported to, and your thoughts on the effectiveness and supportiveness of the reporting process. All levels of university study and all genders welcome.

Erin will not be asking you to share your experience of harassment or violence. She will make the question list available to you in advance upon request if you are nervous about what she might ask or if you are unsure you’ll be able to answer as fully as you’d like on the spot.


  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must be a current student or a recent (within 1 year) graduate of a college or university in the US who has experienced sexual harassment or sexual violence while studying there
  • You must have told someone about your experience: preferably a university contact, but non-university disclosures (e.g. a friend, family member, counsellor, crisis centre) are also welcome

Erin will anonymize both you and your university, and you will have the chance to review the interview transcript before she works with it.

If you’d like to participate, please email with the subject line “Project CURSV Student Participation.”
