Course Description

This course examines the different social forces and dynamics responsible for a variety of expressions of sexual violence existing in contemporary society. The goals of this graduate seminar are: (1) to examine these processes promoting social violence from feminist-informed sociological perspectives; (2) to explore and analyze the historical, economic, and socio-cultural contexts responsible for these processes; (3) to study the issues and concerns with regard (but not limited) to gender, race and ethnicity, class, sexuality, and political activism associated with sexual violence research in the social sciences; and (4) to discuss and critique published sexual violence research based on qualitative methodologies across disciplines.
