Abstract: »Two authors address rape, one male, Sanjaya Thakur, and one female, Sharon James, who here expands on her groundbreaking work on the topic (James 2008). Both shed light on what happens not only in the classroom but in the office. One emphasis here must be on making yourself conversant with the codes and resources at your institution and knowing the boundaries of one's role as professor. We are not counselors and should not try to fill that role.« (Source: Nancy S.
