We know that sexual harassment is a serious problem in academia. However, in this brief commentary I want to work against my ontological desire for simple answers to complex questions (of individual or institutional ethics, norms, power, university structures and hierarchies, bureaucracy, etc. associated with sexual harassment). I am curious what could be gained by asking questions-different, difficult, ethical, political, and personal questions. What would happen if we focused on questions instead of answers? In the following I am living the question of responsibility, especially in the context of the Penn State tragedy.
