#METOO: CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON GENDER, SEXUALITY, AND VIOLENCE

This faculty panel aims to broaden both public and scholarly conversations around sexual assault by focusing on issues/perspectives/experiences that are often absent in mainstream/dominant discourses.

  • Date / Time: Monday, April 23, 2-3:30 p.m.
  • Venue: Conference Room 107, Allen House, South Campus, UMass Lowell

This panel aims to broaden both public and scholarly conversations around sexual assault by focusing on issues/perspectives/experiences that are often absent in mainstream/dominant discourses. The first panel will challenge traditional conceptualizations of sexual assault by illuminating critical social and structural conditions that undergird sexual violence. The second panel will critically examine community and systems responses to sexual violence. All the presentations will be informed by inter-sectional perspectives. They will embrace/honor/center voices/experiences that tend to be silenced or are absent in mainstream discourses and incorporate some systemic understanding of the issues (i.e., an explicit recognition that these are not “women’s issues”).
