The great thing about research is finding people who are doing related work and forging connections. I was really honoured recently to be asked to be an Associate Fellow of the Sexual Harms and Medical Encounters (SH+ME) project at Birkbeck. They are a team, lead by Professor Joanna Bourke, researching the role of medicine and psychiatry in sexual violence. What I love about their approach is that it is both historical and contemporary. They also host fascinating events. I’m so interested in the history of CSA and particularly the experiences of victims/survivors. Do visit their website to find out more.

  1. I am so proud of you. There is something new all the time. Your Dad would have been so proud. What a shame he does not know all of the great things that you are doing.
