The final chapter provides a summary of the book’s key claims. It also applies the arguments developed in previous chapters to other cases, including gun violence on U.S. campuses, the legal standard “deliberate indifference,” and USA Gymnastics’ problems with sexual assault. In so doing, it shows not only how the book’s arguments transfer to other contexts, but also how a feminist new materialist approach can guide U.S. university responses to high rates of assault. The chapter includes concrete suggestions for how campuses can move “beyond the rapist.” Moreover, through these recommendations and analyses of other cases, the chapter shows how a feminist new materialist approach can build theory about the complex relationships among violence, organization, and communication.

Keywords:   actual notice, USA Gymnastics, deliberate indifference, campus rape, organization–violence relationship
