Making power visible: 'slow activism' to address staff sexual misconduct in Higher Education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

This article examines staff-to-student sexual misconduct in higher education in the UK from our perspective as founders and members of the research and lobby organisation The 1752 Group. We theorise sexual misconduct as a range of behaviours that include sexual harassment, assault, grooming, sexual coercion, invitations, and promised resources in return for sexual access. We argue that in order to address staff sexual misconduct in higher education, the problem has to first be made visible, and we outline the types of activism that we have carried out towards this end.
