The Changing Landscape of Consent Education

The Changing Landscape of Consent Education
Friday, October 18, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

From the #MeToo movement, to Ontario’s ever-changing sex ed curriculum, to Québec’s new law on mandatory sexual violence prevention policy in higher education, Canada —and North America at large— seem to be grappling with how to teach consent more than ever before. However, how do we ensure that we provide room for the nuanced conversations and dynamics around how identity intersects with, and complicates relationships and sexuality? In this webinar, Leelan Farhan draws from her experience as both a sex educator and academic working with grassroots organizations to provide possible solutions to this question.  

Leelan Farhan is a doctoral student in the Department of Education at Concordia University and a HASTAC Scholar studying communities, technology, policies, and the way they interact with one another. In particular, she is interested in intersectional, community-led approaches to educational technology. Her doctoral work explores the creation of effective and inclusive solutions for consent education in Canadian high schools using grassroots, community-based research. Leelan holds an Honours B.Sc. in Psychology and a Master of Information, both from the University of Toronto.

This will be the eight of a series of HASTAC Webinars that will run through the end of the summer. In this series, HASTAC Scholars will facilitate 45-minute webinars on topics ranging from Interview Prep or Blog Posting to Networking, Personal Statements, and Pedagogy Strategies for Adjuncts.
