Call for Papers for an edited collection on Rape Culture on Canadian University Campuses
Edited by Diane Crocker, Joanne Minaker, Amanda Nelund
In recent years, universities across the country have faced widely reported scandals attributed to “rape culture” on campus. While sexual violence and harassment have been issues for many years, it seems that incidents are beginning to garner more public attention and scrutiny. The wake of these incidents has generated a flurry of activity, including provincial legislation and university level policy and programming. This collection seeks to add scholarly voices to the national conversation occurring around this issue. The book will include chapters that address rape culture, sexual violence/harassment and safety on university campuses.
We invite empirical papers that document the nature of the problem, its effects, or efforts to change, prevent, or respond to rape culture on campus. We particularly invite research that documents students' experiences or universities policies or programs. We also welcome conceptual work that grapples with the meaning of rape culture, especially work that applies feminist theory to questions associated with violence, rape culture, and the post-secondary educational landscape. We encourage submissions from scholars working in a variety of fields to bring different perspectives to the many facets of rape culture and sexual violence. Publisher: McGill-Queen’s University Press has reached out to one of the editors and discussed the development of a book proposal.
The editors will develop the proposal based on submissions to this call for papers. Abstract Submission Process: Interested contributors should send a 300-400 word abstract and 100 word bio by Dec 12 2016 to email@example.com

Diane Crocker is a Professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at Saint Mary’s University.
