Joint Conflict, Reconstruction and Memory (CRAM) & Gender in Culture and Society (GENCAS) guest lecture

Margaret D. Stetz, Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women’s Studies at the University of Delaware, and co-editor of 'Legacies of the Comfort Women of World War II' (M. E. Sharpe, 2001; Routledge, 2018), will address the controversies over the so-called “comfort women.” For three decades, the issue of Japan’s responsibility for a system of military sexual slavery that involved several hundred thousand underage girls and women from across Asia has posed an intractable problem. Stetz’s talk discusses recent developments – new disputes in the scholarly world, legal rulings in Korea, and attempts by creative artists to shape international public opinion.

All welcome!
