Collaborating to understand marital rape

Collaboration in teaching at Wheaton College yields new insight in scholarship. Such is the case with the volume “Marital Rape” published by Professor’s Yllö and Torres. This presentation is in part a narrative of the findings in the co-edited volume and a narrative of the fruitfulness of collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. Putting together the insight of scholarship in anthropology, sociology and feminist activism the presentation will demonstrate on how interdisciplinary partnerships enable the examination of how cultural, legal, public health, and human rights policies and practices impact intimate partner violence.

Presented by Gabriela Torres, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Kersti Yllö, Professor of Sociology
