Data Visualizations

As part of the Campus Culture curriculum, students identify examples of sex or sexual assault in the media or that they encounter in their daily lives.  Students reflect on the messages their examples are sending and how the situations presented do or do not adhere to the guidelines for sex and consent they generated in class. All data depicted in the visualizations below were generated by students at the University of Iowa. 

 

MEDIA VS. REAL-WORLD EXAMPLES: 


Students are asked to identify examples of sex or sexual assault in the media or that they encounter in their daily lives and to consider what those examples reflect of the cultural narratives that surround sexual assault. Below, see the breakdown of media represented in students’ examples.

CLASS-GENERATED GUIDELINES:


As part of the Campus Culture curriculum, students collaborate with their classmates to generate guidelines for (1) sex and assault and (2) consent. Students are then asked to analyze their chosen media or real-world examples of sex and sexual assault against their class’s generated guidelines. Students were asked to specifically identify if their examples aligned with the guidelines on sex and assault (directly below) and consent (second visualization below).

As part of the Campus Culture curriculum, students collaborate with their classmates to generate guidelines for (1) sex and assault and (2) consent. Students are then asked to analyze their chosen media or real-world examples of sex and sexual assault against their class’s generated guidelines. Students were asked to specifically identify if their examples aligned with the guidelines on sex and assault (directly below) and consent (second visualization below). 
Students also provide locational information for their media and real-world examples. The two visualizations here each represent location information for media and real-world examples.

MESSAGES SENT BY media & real-world EXAMPLES:


As part of the Campus Culture curriculum, students identify examples of sex and sexual assault in the media or that they encounter in their daily lives. Students are asked to critically analyze their chosen examples of sex and sexual assault and specifically identify the messages these examples send about consent (visualization directly below), sex and sexual assault (second visualization below), and sex and substance abuse (third visualization below).
