Gender Violence Seminar (3)

This course will explore the legal, theoretical, and social consequences of gender based violence. The course will examine the history of the legal regulation of gender-based violence, civil, civil rights, and criminal remedies, immigration and human rights responses, and the efficacy of law and policy responses to gender based violence through the lens of intimate partner violence, rape and sexual assault, trafficking, femicide, and forced marriage, among other topics. The course will pay particular attention to the intersectional dynamics of gender based violence. The course will offer a comparative perspective on these issues as well, looking at how gender violence is addressed in other cultures and legal systems. Each seminar student will be required to write a substantial research paper, which may be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement.
