'Lad culture' in Higher Education: Exploring potential spaces for student-led challenges to sexism, violence and abuse.
Join the University of York’s Dr Vanita Sundaram as we explore the phenomenon of ‘lad culture’ in higher education.
This lecture will highlight the contexts in which some young people may be marginalised, and questions the perception that ‘lad culture’ is primarily linked to heavy alcohol consumption and manifested in social spaces.
We highlight the ways in which ‘lad culture’ marginalises and excludes some young people in a range of spaces in higher education and consider approaches to combatting this.
