Distinguished Professor Sherene H. Razack to deliver the 2022 Stapleford Lecture

Media Advisory Release Date: April 26, 2022 1:10 p.m.

Media are invited to the 2022 Stapleford Lecture, featuring Sherene H. Razack, Chair and Distinguished Professor in Gender Studies, and the Penny Kanner Endowed Chair in Women's Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

An international subject matter expert on racial violence, Dr. Razack is the founder of the virtual research and teaching network the Racial Violence Hub (RVHub), and the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada/Australian Research council-funded digital archive Race and Deaths in Custody. She is also the author of Nothing Has to Make Sense: Upholding White Supremacy through Anti-Muslim Racism (2022) and Dying from Improvement: Inquests and Inquiries into Indigenous Deaths in Custody (2015).

Dr. Razack’s public lecture will examine the lethal sexual violence that white men direct at Indigenous women, “an unimaginable fury” in the words of Justices Hamilton and Sinclair of the 1991 Aboriginal Justice Inquiry, and how it is condoned through law and policy by the settler colonial state. She will ask how we, as a society, must name it, analyze it and above all work to end violence directed at Indigenous women and girls.

This free public event will take place via Zoom:

7:00 p.m., Thursday, April 28, 2022
