Kathleen Conn, associate professor in Neumann’s Ed.D. program, will speak at Bullying: Redefining Boundaries, Responsibility, and Harm, a conference hosted by Temple Law School on February 23. Conn holds a Ph.D., J.D. and L.L.M., and is the author of more than a dozen articles on cyberbullying.
At the conference, more than twenty leading scholars and advocates will explore bullying cultures in a variety of different venues, including K-12 education, college and professional schools, the workplace, and senior living environments. Emily Bazelon, a senior editor at Slate, will deliver the keynote speech and discuss her forthcoming book, Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy (Random House 2013).
This symposium will address the phenomenon of bullying as it exists across the life course, from kindergarten through elder care. Speakers will present new research and discuss public policy issues regarding public health considerations, legal remedies, best practices, and the special considerations raised by race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity. The final panel of the day will address ethical issues and outline policies to address bullying in schools, the workplace, and beyond.
