Gendered violence emerges from cultural ideologies that intersect with other cultural formations, including economics, race, religion, law, nationalism, militarism, environmental destruction and so on. Our readings and discussions will focus on three areas: 1. ideologies of gender that rationalize and encourage violence against women & LGBTQ persons; cultural spectacles glorifying gendered violence 2. forms of gendered violence, including domestic violence, rape, sexual harassment, child marriage, female genital mutilation; slavery, human trafficking, labor exploitation, and the feminization of poverty and hunger; murder, including serial murders, honor killings, and genocide 3. women & LGBTQ persons as survivors, warriors, and resistors against violence as well as perpetrators of violence.
