Het Acteursgenootschap: #MeTooAcademia: The Learning Curve
Harassment in academia is of all times, but it has been made urgent by the #MeToo and Time’s Up movement. Many of us think academia will provide a safe, sensible and intellectual environment in which (sexual) harassment is absent, but we have learned this is not always the case. Through their play, Het Acteursgenootschap seeks to create awareness of harassment in academia. The Learning Curve is a 40-minute play about sexual intimidation and abuse of power in a university context. It’s both humorous and bleak, and is written to be followed by a discussion. With the audience, we discuss what you can do if you find yourself, your colleagues or members of your team in such situations.
Organised in cooperation with the Platform of Research Ethics and Integrity (REI) of Maastricht University.
