Define the Line Logo

Led by Shaheen Shariff, Ph.D., James McGill Professor, Define the Line includes several active and former research projects that work to address sexual violence, gender-based violence, and cyberbullying in classrooms, on university campuses, and in society at large. We bring together scholars, students, artists, and community partners both nationally and internationally, and our research spans the fields of policy, law, education, arts, popular culture, and media.

We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
