Presented by Dr. Nora Martin Peterson, associate professor of French Cultural Studies, this talk will connect the roots of the #metoo movement to French Renaissance images and texts.

Many of the narratives surrounding sexual assault, including victim-blaming, erasing the victim’s voice, and the reinforcement of the “heroic” rape narrative, have been present in Western cultural histories for centuries. And yet, as the examples in this presentation will show, 21st-century readers can also gain hope from what it means to read stories of assault from the Renaissance.
