There are 2 comments on BU Observes Sexual Assault Awareness Week

  1. 1 in 5 or 20% of women are sexually assaulted on campus and this article says every 107 seconds or 1 min 47 seconds. Yet, when BU sends out a survey to get information about sexual assault to help this problem, only 1,330 student filled it out forcing the Dean to send out a plea asking people to fill it out. I will do the math for you, 1,330 divided by 16,000 undergraduates is between 8-9% (this includes men). If not even the 1 in 5 women who experienced the assault are willing to fill out the survey, how do we expect to ever solve this issue?

  2. Just heard from the CGSA that there is another event happening on Saturday, April 11, at 6 p.m., in Stone Science Auditorium:

    Context Hacking
    The term “context hacking”—like its older mimetic sibling “communication guerrilla”—refers to unconventional forms of communication and/or intervention in more conventional processes of communication. Context hacking is a specific style of political action drawing from a watchful view of the paradoxes and absurdities of power, turning these into the starting point for interventions by playing with representations and identities, with alienation and over-identification. Johannes Grenzfurthner will present some projects by monochrome, a worldwide operating collective from Vienna dealing with technology, art, and philosophy that was founded in 1993.


    It is being hosted by BU student Sonia Perez Arias
