Luther will discuss the systemic ways sports, as a particular microcosm of our culture, minimizes and ignores issues of gendered violence. Her work most often touches on the particular intersection of college football and sexual violence, but the way that money, institutional hierarchy on campuses, compliance with Title IX, and sports culture and fandom come together is applicable well beyond that. Her talk will touch on all of these issues and provide some ideas for how to begin to fix them.
