Participate in an MLA Survey about the Use of Trigger Warnings

The MLA Committee on the Status of Women in the Profession (CSWP) seeks feedback from MLA members on the use of trigger warnings—written warnings that alert students that material assigned in a course might be upsetting or offensive—at their institutions. Please take a brief survey, which is intended to gather information on broad trends in the academy, not statistically representative data. The College Art Association (CAA) is also sending the survey to its membership, and members of the CSWP and the CAA will present the information they glean from this survey in a roundtable on trigger warnings at the American Association of University Professors Annual Conference on the state of higher education, to be held 10–14 June 2015 in Washington, DC. The survey deadline is 27 April 2015.
