7:00 pm, Nipissing University Weaver Auditorium. Reception to follow.
Drawing on a series of examples from bystander intervention campaigns against sexual violence, this talk examines how the very notion of what it means to respond to violence as a bystander is often modelled on the recording and sharing of digital video and the practices of status updating online. What it means to respond to violence as a bystander, then, can often be dened in ways that are about getting attention rather than arresting violence. Dr. Rentschler is Associate Professor and William Dawson Scholar of Feminist Media Studies at McGill University.
