Special Lecture: Michele Leiby: Explaining State Repression and Sexual Violence
Start Date: 2/7/2013Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 2/7/2013End Time: 1:30 PM
Event Description
Dr. Michele Leiby, Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the College of Wooster, is presenting her work that is based on a the El Salvador Human Rights Archive, a unique resource available only at CU-Boulder. This project examines the patterns of state-perpetrated sexual violence and other forms of political violence during the civil war in El Salvador (1978-1992) in an effort to understand why militaries engage in such violence. Based on archives of El Salvadoran human rights organizations, it finds that sexual violence is not perpetrated randomly, but rather targeted against particular subgroups within the population who present a threat (real or imagined) to the regime. Sponsored by University Libraries, Latin American Studies Center, Dept. of Political Science and the Women and Gender Studies Program.
