Dates of Symposium: October 24-25, 2013
Place: Maroon & Gold Rooms at the Mcnamara Alumni Center

**Free and open to the public.**

The symposium will address violence against women as a human rights violation, the erasure of gender violence in cultural debates about human rights, and the epistemic revolts of the rethinking of violence from a gender perspective. We will gather an international group of scholars, artists and activists in order to discuss and to give visibility to these three major concerns: femicide/feminicide, rape in the context of genocide, armed conflict or state terrorism, and trafficking in women and girls with the purpose of sexual exploitation. We also hope to foster a dialogue that could lead to an ongoing interdisciplinary and transnational collaboration inside and outside the university community.
