The 2018 Nashman FLC: GW Response to Violence Against Women

Co-chairs: Laurie Kohn and Erin Scheick, GW Law School

Are you interested in engaging in an interdisciplinary exploration of topics pertaining to violence against women, including intimate partner, domestic, and sexual violence? Are you seeking to broaden your perspective of anti-violence movements? Would you like to be a part of an intellectual community seeking to establish innovative University-wide responses to violence against women in our local community?

The purpose of this FLC is to build community across disciplines, nourish academic scholarship and research, encourage reflection and innovation regarding approaches to addressing violence against women, and establish a project that reflects GW’s commitment to addressing violence against women in the D.C. metropolitan area. 

Interested applicants should have a demonstrated interest in violence against women, and/or academic or hands-on backgrounds in anti-violence, anti-oppression, or women's studies, or a thirst for being part of a FLC that harnesses the collective resources of the University to address the problem of violence against women locally. 

 To apply, please email your response to the following items to Wendy Wagner (wagnerw@gwu.edu) by December 15, 2017.

  • Name
  • Title/School affiliation 
  • What do you anticipate contributing to the FLC? 
  • What do you hope to gain from participating in the FLC? 
  • What is your relevant background in intimate partner, domestic, or sexual violence and/or women's studies? 
  • Are there constraints in your schedule that would affect meeting times or planning?

The FLC will convene monthly and will involve moderate reading in preparation for our meetings. Our goal is to ultimately undertake an inter-discipinary/inter-professional initiative that is relevant to the topic of violence against women.
