Join us for the seminar, “Detrimental to Our Well-Being: Digital Technologies and Campus Sexual Misconduct in Singapore,” on 8 April 2022, 4-6pm (Singapore Time).
We will present the preliminary findings of our pilot study exploring university students’ digital well-being and the ways in which various technologies like social media, online platforms, and mobile applications shape and are shaped by campus sexual misconduct at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Our multi-methodological study was conducted with victim-survivors, bystanders, and support persons with care to keep them anonymous and yet highlight their experiences. We hope to have a collective discussion with the NUS community about how to move forward based on our initial findings and recommendations.
Our team, Campus Sexual Misconduct in a Digital Age (CASMIDA), has also compiled a list of academic resources on campus sexual misconduct.

Together with CASMIDA, the NUS Gender and Sexuality Research Cluster (GSRC) is hosting a film screening + discussion of The Hunting Ground (2015) (M18 contains references to sexual violence).
Film Screening (virtual screening room opened for 48 hours)
Monday, 21 February – Tuesday 22 February (SGT)
Wednesday 23 February | 4 – 5pm (SGT)
Note: Viewing of the film (due to licensing) is restricted to people based in the following countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, India, Taiwan, China, South Korea, UK, Japan.
From the filmmakers of The Invisible War (2012) comes a startling expose of rape crimes on U.S. campuses, their institutional cover-ups, and the tragic social consequences. Weaving together vérité footage and first-person testimonials, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education and legal justice, despite harsh retaliation, harassment, and pushback.
(Duration of film: 1h 43mins)
Following the film screening, we will hold a Zoom discussion session. We will assign attendees into different breakout rooms for discussion (30mins), before gathering back into the main room. A cluster member will be around to facilitate the discussion in each breakout room.
This film contains narratives that some viewers may find disturbing. If you feel that you may be triggered or traumatized by hearing individuals speak about their experiences of sexual violence, you are advised not to attend this screening.
