I am Lucrece: Rethinking Sexual Violence

November 10, 2014 ▪ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How might Shakespeare’s “The Rape of Lucrece” shed light on current conversations about “rape culture” in the United States and on college campuses?  Offered in conjunction with a series of performances of this Shakespeare classic, the Urban Democracy Lab has invited New York Magazine writer Vanessa Grigoriadis, activist, Columbia graduate and SAFER board member Marybeth Seitz-Brown, and NYU Associate Faculty member Cyd Cipolla to discuss the movement against campus sexual assault and what it tells us about women’s voices — and continued silencing — in the public sphere.

We will continue the discussion at #iamlucrece
