SHaME is an active research group that started in October 2018. We will be hosting regular conferences, workshops, and other outreach activities.


On Wednesday 29 November 2023, SHaME will be hosting the premiere of documentary film, SHaME: Stories of Survival. The film, by Sophie MacCorquodale, features the stories of four survivors of sexual violence sharing their reflections on the aftercare they received. The screening will take place at Rich Mix Arts Centre and will be followed by a panel discussion and drinks reception.
