GEND334 Special Topic: Theorising Interventions in Sexual Violence

A special topic in Gender Studies.

Sexual violence is an ongoing problem in our society. This paper examines theoretical approaches to the prevention of sexual violence. Diverse and transdisciplinary contributions will be considered, including those from psychology, sociology, public health and women's and gender studies. Of central concern will be unpacking gendered assumptions about women and men, looking at how they contribute to the "cultural scaffolding of rape". Students will be encouraged to think about how prevention efforts can continue to move forward to prevent sexual violence.
