Featuring Professor Aya Gruber and Professor Caroline Bettinger-López
Introduction of Speaker Series by Professor Jane Stoever
Discussion moderated by Professor Leigh Goodmark
The first session of our fall 2020 speaker series presents varying perspectives on policing intimate partner violence. This important discussion occurs in the context of global movements against racism and calls to defund the police and to develop alternatives to carceral systems.
Professor Aya Gruber draws on critical race feminism, media analysis, and her own experience as a public defender to address how policing is inherently flawed in responding to intimate partner violence. She will share insights from her new book, The Feminist War on Crime: The Unexpected Role of Women’s Liberation in Mass Incarceration, as she discusses the role of feminist debates in the politics of mass incarceration and a critical vision regarding policing in our intersectional age.
Professor Caroline Bettinger-López will discuss international human rights perspectives on gender-based violence and policing and how they overlay with domestic approaches, both before and during COVID-19 and concerning the Black Lives Matter movement. She will draw on her contribution to the forthcoming book, Policing, Communication, and Safety.
Professor Jane Stoever, Director of the Initiative to End Family Violence, will introduce the fall speaker series. The discussion on policing intimate partner violence will be moderated by Professor Leigh Goodmark, author of A Troubled Marriage: Domestic Violence and the Legal System and Decriminalizing Domestic Violence: A Balanced Policy Approach to Intimate Partner Violence.
