Gender, Violence and Political Activism: Event 1
In September and October 2021, Virginia Tech will host a virtual mini course and workshop series featuring historian Andrea Peto. During the five-part series, the professor of gender studies at Central European University in Vienna will discuss the transgenerational trauma of war crimes against women during World War II. She will also explore the global situation of gender studies, gender politics, gender and illiberalism, and rightwing and anti-feminist movements in Europe.
The event series was organized by Katalin Parti, an assistant professor in the Virginia Tech Department of Sociology.
Sponsors for the event series include the International Initiatives Committee of the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences; the Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention; the Women and Gender Studies Program; and the Center for European Union, Transatlantic, and Trans-European Space Studies.
