This event was organised in collaboration with UCC’s Student Union for Consent Awareness Week, and was open to everyone within and beyond the university. This event was organised in response to the release of recent figures related to sexual assault on campuses across Ireland and the exacerbated impact that the confinement during the pandemic has had on incidents of intimate partner and domestic violence. It included the following:
Representing Gender-Based Violence a talk by Dr Caroline Williamson Sinalo and Dr Nicoletta Mandolini focusing on the ethical challenges and questions raised by naming and representing Gender-Based Violence.
UCC Flashmobsters against Gender-Based Violence, the presentation of a short video co-created by our cluster to respond to and build on the multilingual flash mob organised in February of this year, in collaboration with students and staff of UCC, in its rejection of patriarchal violence and victim-blaming narratives. Comments and questions from the audience will be invited after the presentations.
