Event details

Rape is not legally defined in the same way within nor across jurisdictions and scalar levels (local, national, international). This variation in legal definitions leads to competing and conflicting notions of what rape. How do scale, geography, power and meaning interact toward finding justice for victims? University Forum is sponsored by Ecumenical Campus Ministries. This program is held each Wednesday during the Spring and Fall semesters at the ECM Center. The presentations are free and open to the University and Lawrence communities. Every presentation begins at 12:00 noon, and usually includes a brief question and answer period before concluding at 1:00 p.m. We also serve an optional lunch at 11:30am for $6.50 ($3.50 for students) The University-Community forum has been bringing together the KU and Lawrence communities since the 1940s. This program is a series of presentations by faculty, students and community members to educate and facilitate dialogue on ideas and events that shape our society.
