Thank you to the Humanities Center at Wayne State University for selecting me as a 2020-2021 Humanities Center Resident Scholar to continue my study of U.S. news media coverage of academic sexual harassment in the United States. For this project, I am collaborating with five graduate students in the Department of Communication. We are conducting a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the type of news media which cover academic sexual harassment and to which extent the #metoo movement is used as a referencing framework. I am looking forward to continuing this project.
