The project “Polyhedral Views on Gender Violence” has concluded its online conferences on Thursday, June 4, with a final lecture by Vanita Sundaram, professor of education at the University of York and member of the Center for Research on Education and Social Justice (CRESJ).

Vanita Sundaram‘s presentation offered an overview of the key elements arisen in her research on gender violence in different educational settings and highlighted the remaining questions to consider when developing a truly intersectional approach to violence prevention.

The “Zones F” podcast was also presented in this last conference session, an audio creation by Patricia Fuentes Millán and Desiré Rodrigo García (Lo Relacional) in which they share the common challenges, questions and strategies that emerge in workshops and initiatives aimed at tackling gender violence prevention and other forms of social inequalities and discriminations in secondary schools.

The conference “Polyhedral Views on Gender Violences” included an inaugural lecture by Emilia Zenzile Roig (Center for Intersectional Justice), and has been structured in three roundtables with invited experts on the fields of intersectionality, feminism, education, sexual and gender diversity, gender equality, violence prevention and public policies.

With almost 2000 views, the conference sessions have provided conceptual and applied tools for reflection and practice, and have facilitated an open exchange with the participants via Zoom and through the Center for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies (CEIG)‘s YouTube Live channel. You can find all the presentations and discussions below and on the project website.
