Price Lecture: Karin Friederic, "Women's Rights, Gender Violence and Body Politics in Coastal Ecuador"

  • Date: Monday, October 2, 2017
  • Time: 5:00 pm
  • Location: F.W. Olin Building, Room 102

In her lecture, Friederic explains how exposure to state media campaigns, laws, health policies and international development partnerships introduces new ideas of gender and selfhood, new visions of rights and development, and changing definitions of what counts as violence.

By following families over 15 years of research and friendship, Friederic demonstrates how women and men of all ages are struggling to develop new understandings of themselves and their intimate—and sometimes violent—relationships to one another. She will also address a recent intervention against intimate partner violence at her field site and provide broader lessons for women's rights advocacy across the globe.
