Histories of Violence I: Gender and Sexuality

Fri, October 9, 8:00 to 9:45am, Sheraton Centre, Chestnut West

Session Submission Type: Paper Session: Traditional Format


Scholars that centralize violence have generated critical insights. The study of sexual violence alongside racial violence was central to the emergence of intersectionality—the notion that race and gender are mutually constitutive processes—that has transformed the field of women and gender history. This panel highlights scholarship that centralizes lynching, night-riding, rape, and hate crimes, examining how an intersectional approach generates from the use of violence as a category of analysis.
