Gender Based Violence Research Network Seminar- ‘Sexual Abuse as a Moral Panic?’

September 30, 2014

29 Oct 2014, 1pm, 57-61 Oakfield Ave, Nursing & Health Care, University of Glasgow

Recent media coverage of high profile sexual abuse cases prompted some commentators to question if we are witnessing a ‘moral panic’ in relation to sexual abuse. Join us for presentations and debate about the implications of framing sexual abuse in these terms for survivors, practitioners and researchers.

This half day seminar organised by the Gender Based Violence Research Network is free to attend, but places are limited.

To book, please RSVP Lisa Campbell, SCCJR Knowledge Exchange Assistant, University of Glasgow, Lisa.Campbell@glasgow.ac.uk t: 0141 330 1834.
