“Dreamstorming & Institutional Courage: Centering Black Women in Addressing Cultural Betrayal & Sexual Violence at the University"

5/2/2024, 11:00 AM

In this talk, Dr. Gómez draws on her book, The Cultural Betrayal of Black Women & Girls: A Black Feminist Approach to Healing from Sexual Abuse, to detail her research with cultural betrayal trauma theory, in which she applied this Black feminist scientific framework for examining the unique cultural betrayal harm of within-group violence in marginalized communities. Dr. Gómez will then discuss opportunities for making institutional change, using examples based on her lived experience at the University of Oregon and a hypothetical case of institutional betrayal at the university included in her book. Dr. Gómez will end the talk with a dreamstorming example: If the world, including this university, were fully and completely equitable and peaceful, what would that look like? And how do we get there?


Reception with lunch fare will follow the lecture


Free signed copies of Dr. Gómez’s book will be available for the first registered attendees.
