In the News
Joel Aure, Title IX coordinator, was quoted in an Oct. 4 Daily Gazette story titled "Skidmore, UAlbany report more rapes, but see it as a positive sign." Aure made the point that more reports reflects an increased willingness by victims to report incidents rather than an actual increase in incidents.
On Oct. 2 Linda Simon, professor emerita of English, was interviewed by Kyle McMillen on the New Books Network podcast about her new book, Lost Girls: The Invention of the Flapper (2017, University of Chicago Press).
