This website started as part of a class project for GSS 350: Sex Radicals during the Fall 2019 semester. The goal was to radically re-imagining Davidson College’s process for dealing with sexual violence through a transformative justice framework (definition for transformative justice can be found here). Although this website was borne of course requirements, it has lasted beyond the semester-long project. Currently, the Davidson College Rape Awareness Committee (RAC) manages the website organized around the original group’s research. Beyond The Frats houses research and resources on transformative justice and restorative justice and their implementation on college campuses, as well as our suggestions for new processes at Davidson College. Apart from our suggestions (see: Demands), the site’s creators and RAC have done research on the history of sexual violence and organizing around sexual violence at Davidson. If you are interested in helping us imagine a better Davidson, you can fill out our response form on “Reimagining Davidson.”
