Call for Papers for Special Edition of Violence Against Women journal – “Teaching Domestic Violence”

Deadline- Monday, October 1, 2012

The university campus was a critical site for second wave feminists in the U.S. who gathered to raise the campus and community consciousness about woman battering. Since this period of feminist organization against woman battering, faculty and staff have been teaching about violence against women on university campuses. Early discussions about rape and domestic violence were shared informally after a class, through non-curricular activities hosted by a Women’s Center, and within mainstream courses taught by feminist faculty, sometimes in partnership with community activists. Soon enough, officially recognized courses focusing on domestic violence began to proliferate across university campuses.
Typically they have been found within social science or humanities undergraduate curricula or as part of the elective law, social work or nursing school coursework.
