ECM Center, 1204 Oread Ave
Rape is not legally defined in the same way within nor accross jurisdictions and scalar levels (local, national, international). This variation in legal definitions leads to competing and conflicting notions of what rape is. This seminar will try to answer the questions, how do scale, geography, power and meaning interact toward finding justice for victims?
