Sexual Assault on College Campuses: An Issue for All

Dr. Kimberly Theidon is a renowned medical anthropologist. Her research interests include domestic, structural and political violence and gender studies. A prolific writer, her book Intimate Enemies was awarded the 2013 Honorable Mention from the Washington Office on Latin America-Duke University Book Award for Human Rights in Latin America, and the 2013 Honorable Mention for the Eileen Basker Prize from the Society for Medical Anthropology for research on gender and health. Her most recent work, Speaking of Silences, explores how the victim-centric logic of transitional justice may silence other relationships people have with their pasts, particularly with regard to sexual and other forms of gender-based violence. She is actively involved in the growing movement of making college campuses across the country safer for everyone.

Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend. Lunch will be provided. RSVP to womenctr@duke.edu.

Sponsored by The Women’s Center, the Women’s Studies Program,  and the DHRC@FHI.
