I’m Emily Chapman, an anthropology student at Emory University with an interest in public health, particularly as it applies to sexual assault response and prevention. I’m a member of Phi Beta Kappa and a sister in Sigma Delta Tau. I’m currently pursuing an honors thesis on how American mourning rituals have been changed by Facebook (and blogging the thesis here). I’m certified as a facilitator under Emory’s Sexual Assault Peer Advocate program.
At Emory, I have worked with the Respect Program on issues related to sexual assault education, prevention, and response. I am in the process of designing a fraternity-focused sexual assault prevention program. We roll out this year with staff facilitators and have plans to eventually be peer-led. I have also created several resource documents specifically for students at Emory’s smaller campus in Oxford, GA. I helped write and lead the training for Oxford College residential assistants for the 2012-2013 school year.
Outside of Emory, I work with the Feminist Women’s Health Center. I designed and helped execute the 2012 annual campaign fundraising effort by filming interviews with clinic volunteers and staff and publicizing them through Facebook and Twitter.
I am a freelance writer and have been published on xoJane, Lifehacker, and HackCollege (among others).
