Abstract:Our regular review of the research literature looks at studies suggesting that the after-effects of rape may be more severe than other non-lethal crimes; that contrary to many idealized popular depictions of the contemporary college climate, campuses can be racialized environments hostile to minority students; and a series of studies that reinforce the idea, expressed elsewhere in this issue of CSSD, that in loco parentis is indeed alive and well on the American college campus.
