SHaME is an active, interdisciplinary research group with a wealth of expertise in examining the complex relationship between medicine, psychiatry, and sexual violence.
Our researchers come from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds including history, anthropology, law and feminist studies, to explore the multiple roles the medical and psychiatric disciplines have played in defining, understanding, adjudicating and responding to sexual harms.
Collectively our research spans the eighteenth century to the present and covers global contexts including the UK, US, Francoist Spain, Kenya, Ghana, California, France, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
