"Women, Violence, and War"
This Spring's Davies Scholars are blogging about the Forum>>> Read all about it!
This Spring, the Davies Forum topic will be: "Women, Violence, and War" This forum will be taught by Professor Annick Wibben of the Department of Politics.
While the topic of women, violence, and war is certainly as old as war itself, a recent explosion of research on the issues has lead to has lead to crucial shifts understanding them. When most people think of women, violence and war, they think of women as victims. However, it has become increasingly obvious that women are also actively engaged in the promotion and execution of wartime violence. This Davies Forum gathers and interrogates the most up-to-date research by scholars from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds whose combined insights provide a unique and more complete overview of the evolving roles of women at the intersection of violence and war - from the domestic to the international and back.
Throughout the Spring various guests will visit the University of San Francisco to share their views on these issues. For more information about this events, please see our Events page.
