Roundtable: Interpreting Gendered and Sexual Violence

Presented by Elizabeth O’Brien, John Carranza, and Chris Babits

This roundtable will discuss the challenges of narrating gendered violence in medical history. Each panelist will offer 8-10 minutes of commentary, and then the session will open for a broader discussion with the audience. Chris will discuss conversion therapy ice-pick lobotomies; John will speak on genetic testing and disability; and Elizabeth will comment on experimental surgeries that increase maternal mortality. The goal of this discussion is to promote conversation on the methodological, ethical, narrative, and epistemological issues that arise in historical treatments of violence and gender. We also hope to discuss how historians have addressed gender and medical violence in the past and where the field is headed in the future.
