1. Cowan, Sharon. "Knowing When Yes Is Really Yes: Criminal Law's Construction of Consent in Intoxicated Rape" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, TBA, Berlin, Germany, Jul 25, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-06-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p175474_index.html>

Abstract: Desire for and consent to sex on the part of the complainant in a rape trial has historically been inferred from dress, behaviour, intoxication and previous sexual history. The judicial reluctance to accept that a person who has voluntarily intoxicated themselves could be raped has a long history - Kim Stevenson (1999) for example notes that “the comment of Mr. Justice Willes in 1856, doubting that the offence of rape could be committed "upon the person of a woman who had rendered herself perfectly insensible by drink" (The Times, 6 December 1856)”. Arguably however, consent cannot be valid, and further there can be no reasonable belief in consent, if one party is in a condition, self-induced or otherwise, where communication is compromised to this degree. In the UK, the Home Office have recently recognised that intoxication presents a serious problem in establishing whether or not there was consent and have produced a consultation paper (2006) to prompt discussion on how to deal with incapacity through intoxication. They have recommended a statutory definition of capacity, but this does not address the issue, highlighted in R v Gardner [2005] EWCA Crim 1399, of the defendant’s claim to reasonable belief despite incapacity. This paper will examine the construction of consent and capacity to consent in criminal law where the victim is intoxicated, arguing that a more robust approach to the question of capacity to consent should be taken by courts and in legislative definitions of rape where the victim of the assault is intoxicated.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This financial environment has created a circumstance that demands both honest reflection on which aspects of the academe must be sustained and which must change. As chair of a large blended department, this presentation will focus on communication processes that we have used to structure reflective dialogues to address stability and change. Focus will be placed on the issues that a chair faces: retaining faculty in a time of shrinking resources, cultivating an intellectual environment that resists fear but supports creative thinking and scholarly productivity, protecting junior faculty, and meeting responsibilities to offer an effective graduate and undergraduate educational experience.

Abstract: Though schools and governments have been increasingly raising awareness about campuses sexual assaults, the most effective approach for preventing sexual misconduct on campus is still unclear. In an effort to minimize sexual assaults, universities across the U.S. are increasingly being mandated by legislation to implement unified university-based Affirmative Consent Policies (ACPs) to clarify and narrow the definition of consensual behaviors in sexual encounters. More than 800 colleges and universities, including all CA public universities and 64 SUNY institutions, now use some type of ACP. Yet, the ACPs’ effectiveness and students’ abilities and willingness to apply the policy is largely unknown. This project examines this issue by surveying undergraduate students at a SUNY institution. The paper (1) measures how students perceive sexual consent before they receive Affirmative Consent Policy education and training as well as measure differences in male and female perceptions about sexual behaviors; (2) tests students’ understanding and appreciation of verbal versus nonverbal consent as outlined in SUNY’s university-wide ACP on sexual harassment and sexual assault; and (3) uses hypotheticals to examine students’ abilities to meaningfully identify and apply the ‘Yes Means Yes’ ACPs (as opposed to the legally embraced ‘No Means No’ standards) in sexual encounters.

Abstract: Wedding reality television shows have proliferated in recent years, serving to further bolster what Ingraham (1999) terms the widespread “wedding industrial complex.” The current study specifically examines The Learning Channel’s "Say Yes to the Dress" as an exemplar of this genre. This study seeks to explore the show’s presentation of the meaning of marriage and weddings, the norms of bridal behavior and femininity, the symbolic value attached to the dress, and the lessons regarding proper wedding consumption practices. Through this analysis, "Say Yes to the Dress" is explored as a pedagogic text that presents traditional consumption narratives, but one that also offers significant exceptions and new perspectives on the wedding industry that allow for more diverse, fluid, critical approaches to the wedding institution and industry.

Abstract: This paper will discuss the kinds of learning that students undergo in an intensive language study abroad program. In addition to acquiring the basics of language, students take much more away from the experience when they are immersed in a culture. They learn nonverbal communication skills, lifestyles, values, popular culture, and the challenges of life outside the United States. This paper will use the Baylor in Argentina program as a case study to examine the kinds of learning, aside from language acquisition, that students take away from a study abroad experience and how that learning enhances their understanding of not just a foreign culture, but also their own.
