Our wonderful RCGV faculty and students have been up to lots of exciting things!
Dr. Sheryl Kubiak and doctoral student Cristy Cummings will be presenting at the Batterer Intervention Services Coalition of Michigan (BISC-MI) conference in Dearborn, MI on November 2nd. The topic of the presentation is: Trauma Informed Considerations and Implications for Intervention: Men Who Have Experienced Childhood Sexual Abuse. More information about the conference can be found here.
Dr. Heather McCauley published an article this week, which provides guidance for clinicians and researchers working to reduce reproductive coercion and its impact on women’s health. The article appeared online in Contraception and can be found here.
Dr. Lisa Biggs has been awarded $100,000 from the Knight Foundation for her next theatre/dance work, AFTER/LIFE. AFTER/LIFE is a living history play that will be devised by Detroit residents and undergraduates at Michigan State University to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 riots. Conceived by Dr. Lisa Biggs (Assistant Professor, Michigan State University) and directed by Kristin Horton (Associate Professor of Practice, New York University), AFTER/LIFE will commemorate Detroit’s 1967 rebellion and tell the story of its aftermath from the perspectives of the overlooked thousands of women and girls who chased police, lit fires, threw bricks, shoplifted, and much more. Visit the Knight Foundation website for more information.
Congratulations to all our faculty and students on a great start to the semester!
