Reframing Gendered Violence Group Holds “Is Gender Violence Governable? A Panel on International Feminist Regulation” on October 13th
On Thursday, October 13th, CSSD presents “Is Gender Violence Governable?: A Panel on International Feminist Regulation” at 4:15 p.m. in 203 Butler Library. This is the first event in a two-year series called Reframing Gendered Violence, which is part of the Women Creating Change initiative supported by the Dean of the Humanities and the Columbia Global Centers. Reframing Gendered Violence is also linked to the project on Religion and the Global Reframing of Gender Violence, which is supported by the Henry Luce Foundation.
Dubravka Zarkov, Associate Professor of Gender, Conflict and Development at the International Institute of Social Studies, The Hague, will present on “Feminist Politics, War Rapes, and Global Governance” and Rema Hammami, Associate Professor of Women’s Studies at Birzeit University, Birzeit, OPT, will present on “Follow the Numbers: Global Governmentality and the Domestic Violence Agenda.” Janet Halley, Royall Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, will serve as discussant.
Reframing Gendered Violence is an international collaboration between scholars, artists and activists that aims to recast the way violence against women (VAW) and gender-based violence (GBV) are currently discussed in a wide range of fields, both academic and policy-oriented, including human rights, public health, journalism, law, feminist studies, literature, sociology, religious studies, anthropology, and history.
The second event in the series, “Framing Religion and Gender Violence: Beyond the Muslim Question,” takes place on November 3rd, also at 203 Butler Library. Further events this year include “Refugees and Gender Violence: Vulnerability and Resistance” and “Refugees and Gender Violence: Media and the Arts” and “Reframing Gendered Violence: Indigenous Women’s Voices” in the following academic year.
