Seminar – Looking Beyond Violence: Framing Partner Abuse as Coercive Control

Evan Stark

Glasgow School for Business & Society – Institute for Society and Social Justice Seminar Series Wednesday 4 September, 2013, 5pm – 7pm

Deeprose Lecture Theatre, Glasgow Caledonian University

(Evan Stark will also be giving a public lecture in Edinburgh in October. Details will be on this website over the next few weeks)

Professor Evan Stark is a forensic social worker and award-winning researcher from Rutgers University, with an international reputation for his work on the legal, policy, and health dimensions of interpersonal violence. He has served as an expert in more than 100 criminal and civil cases, including a successful federal class-action suit against New York City that made it unconstitutional to remove children from mothers solely because the mothers had been victims of domestic violence.

Professor Stark is visiting the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships from August to October 2013 as Leverhulme-funded exchange fellow and is involved in a number of events.

His book Coercive Control: The Entrapment of Women in Personal Life (2007) won awards from the Association of American Publishers and the American Library Association. The book tracks the implications for policy and administration of reframing domestic violence as a “liberty crime.”

Booking for this seminar is essential, so please email Trish Connolly if you wish to attend.
