Research Integrity Round #20 - 11 September 2024 Scenes on social safety


A misplaced joke, or a hurtful jibe? A thoughtless remark, or a denigrating sneer? Outright bullying, or subtle micro aggression? In today’s international academy, with its hierarchy and multiplicity of cultural and sexual sensitivities, the boundary between acceptable and unacceptable behavior is not always readily discernible.
Everyone at Radboudumc should be able to work and study in a safe environment. Consequently, it is important to treat one another with respect and provide opportunities for talent development. However, socially unsafe situations inadvertently occur.

To raise awareness on this topic and to stimulate  conversation within our community, we invited The Dutch Actors Society (”Het Acteursgenootschap”) with their theatre play “Scenes on social safety”. In four short scenes the theater production will illustrate different forms of more or less unacceptable behavior. Between the scenes, moderator Dr. Jos Kole will encourage a dialogue on the subject. We will exchange experiences and insights and discuss the question how we can foster a safe and positive academic working space for all.

The Dutch Actors Society

The Dutch Actors Society is a theatre company with a focus on the community of science and academia. After two successful previous performances (The ConScience App in 2019 and The learning curve in 2023), we have once again invited The Dutch Actors Society for our Research Integrity Round.


There will be two performances:
1st performance: 12:30 - 14:15 hrs
2nd performance: 15:15 - 17:00 hrs
