The Sociology of Sexual Harassment and the Transformational
Potential of Student Research
Using examples from her research over the last five years, Dr. Legerski will describe the usefulness of a
sociological perspective for understanding the social forces that enable sexual harassment across a variety of contexts – from the Bakken oil boom to student field placements. Along the way, she hopes to illustrate the importance of providing student research opportunities – a high impact practice that has the potential to transform student learning and lives.
