Women, Violence, and Cultural Production in Contemporary Latin America

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

12:00pm – 1:00pm

McKinney Conference Room, Watson Institute, 111 Thayer St.

This interdisciplinary reading group will reflect on theoretical and artistic responses to forms of violence against women in present-day Latin America. The group will bring together faculty and students from a range of disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The interdisciplinary endeavor will establish a collaborative research environment in which the participants will benefit from intellectual exchanges based on a broad spectrum of theories and examples of cultural production. Through readings, discussions, and presentations from visiting faculty and artists, the group will consider how scholars and artists represent and challenge ongoing conditions of violence in Latin America.
