      Call for Papers

      PERSPECTIVES ON VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IN RELATIONSHIPS: CULTURE,
      INEQUALITY, AND DIFFERENCE

      Canadian Anthropology Society/Societe Canadienne d'Anthropologie (CASCA)
      May 3-6, 2001
      McGill University, Montreal
      Held jointly with The American Ethnological Society & The Society for
      Cultural Anthropology

      ***Please distribute widely.  Excuse cross-postings.***

      This session seeks to explore some of the complex issues surrounding
      violence against women in relationships from local, international and
      transnational perspectives.  We invite contributions from anthropologists
      and other scholars addressing various themes related to what is also known
      as intimate/partner/domestic violence.  In keeping with the conference
      theme, papers discussing aspects and intersections of culture, difference
      and inequality as they relate to violence against women are especially
      encouraged. 

      Suggestions include but are not limited to:

      · Anthropological writings of/on/about woman abuse in intimate relationships

      · The impact of the effort to understand and/or define violence against
      women in gender neutral ways (e.g., "domestic violence," "partner abuse,"
      "intimate violence," "spousal abuse," etc.)

      · Conceptions of race, class and gender in understandings of violence
      against women (e.g., in popular understandings, in policy, in the media)

      · Violence against women and the role of state systems from legal,
      historical, cultural, sociological, economic, etc. perspectives (e.g.,
      analyses of law and policy, social services, medical institutions, private
      stakeholders, alternative justice initiatives, media, and education)

      · Violence against women in relationships from cross-cultural,
      international and transnational perspectives (e.g., its relationship to
      development, colonialism, human rights, global economic systems)

      · Experiential narratives and their role in domestic violence research

      · Explorations of the discursive, political, and institutional creation and
      maintenance of "battered women"

      · Ethical and methodological implications for research into violence
      against women in relationships

      · Possible tensions between feminist aims and goals for social change and
      anthropological goals of relativism or respect for cultural practice

      Please e-mail a title and a brief abstract (250 words) by January 8, 2001
      to both Jennifer Hamilton at jhamilto@... and Patty Ginn at
      pjginn@...
