Lecture by Corey Rayburn Yung RI '20

Free and open to the public.


During his Radcliffe fellowship, Corey Rayburn Yung is writing a book analyzing the paradox between panic and denial at the heart of American laws related to sexual violence. The book will build upon his previous research to offer a coherent explanation for the social and legal dynamics surrounding sexual violence. The project will be substantially aided by the unique resources related to sex crimes available at the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America.
