Dr. Rosa-Linda Fregoso | Book talk: The Force of Witness
In The Force of Witness Dr. Rosa-Linda Fregoso examines the contra feminicide movement in Mexico and other feminist efforts to eradicate gender violence. Drawing on interviews, art, documentaries, and her years of activism, Fregoso shows how different forms of witnessing—from activist-mothers, experts in court cases to communal and scholaractivist-citizens—are key to resisting feminicidal violence. She will be in dialogue with Dr. Sylvanna Falcón, Huerta Center director and Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) associate professor. This free and public event is co-sponsored with the LALS department.
