The Borghesi-Mellon Center for Care Initiative, stewarded by GWS faculty Chris Garlough and Annie Menzel with Professor Michael Peterson from Art and Interdisciplinary Theater Studies, hosted a virtual conversation with Sarah Deer and Bonnie Clairmont.
The event, co-hosted with the WUD Distinguished Lecture Series on November 9, 2020, was titled “Confronting Sexual Violence in the Settler Colonial University.” Dr. Deer and Ms. Clairmont spoke about gender-based violence in a university setting defined by ongoing settler colonial occupation and the ways students and faculty can work to address these issues.
