Courtney Miller, graduate student in philosophy, will speak on the topic “The Social Location of the Victim/Survivor of Sexual Assault” at, in the IASH Conference Room, LN-1106. Victims/survivors of sexual assault are not understood as occupying a unique social location. Instead, their experiences are typically explained with reference to categories such as gender, class, and race. Miller will argue that victims/survivors of sexual assault occupy a social location that is distinct from other social positions.
