This symposium will share contemporary research concerned with gender violence and young people in the Global South. The symposium will address key questions about the effects of violence on young subjectivities, the role of institutions in constraining or expanding opportunities to counter violence, and the research approaches and agendas needed to support and strengthen post 2015 interventions in policy and practice. Speakers from a range of disciplines (including education, anthropology, sociology, health, critical policy research) will stimulate discussion on these questions through sharing research case studies. The provisional programme includes:
· Fiona Leach; Elaine Unterhalter; Jenny Parkes (Conceptual, methodological and ethical issues in researching gender violence, poverty and education)
· Ana Maria Buller; Ariane de Lannoy (Masculinity, youth and violence: Peru, South Africa)
· Virginia Morrow; Karen Devries (Corporal punishment in schools: India, Uganda)
· Jo Heslop; Kirrily Pells; Charley Nussey (Gender violence in private spaces – homes and communities: Vietnam, Kenya, Ghana, Mozambique, South Africa)
· Polly Wilding; Lorena Fuentes (Gender and violence in programming, policy and public discourse: Brazil, Guatemala)
A number of the presenters will be building on their chapters for the new book Gender Violence in Poverty Contexts: The Educational Challenge (ed. Parkes) http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415712491/ , which will be launched at the end of the day.
This symposium will appeal to academics, practitioners and policymakers across disciplines and sectors whose work has a concern with gender, violence and young people in the Global South.
This event is free of charge, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. However, spaces are limited and early booking is essential.
