As part of “Gender, Violence, and Anti-Violence,” a conference presented by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, Professor of Theater and Dean of the College Jill Dolan moderates a panel on “Cultural Representations of Gendered Violence.” How does live performance help us see the operations of gendered violence across the local and the global? How does the live body of the performer, as well as those of spectators, help testify to and witness gendered violence?

Panel participants include Catherine Cole (UC Berkeley), Sonja Kuftinec (University of Minnesota), and Mojisola Adebayo (London Performer/Playwright/Director), who will perform a short extract from her play, I Stand Corrected, during the panel discussion.

The panel, beginning at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, April 1, in Room 219 at Aaron Burr Hall, is free and open to the public.
