*This is the first night of a two-night event.

Kent State University’s College of Arts and Sciences and The Institute for the Study and Prevention of violence presents “Documenting Violence: Seeing the Disappeared” from 7-9 pm on October 11th and 12th in Cartwright Hall Auditorium on the Kent Campus.  Research on violence in Guatemala, the former Yugoslavia, and the U.S., including the events of September 11th, will be presented.  The event is free and to the public.

  • UNBC Geographer Dr. Catherine Nolin will discuss her work on past and present state sponsored violence in Guatemala.  Her 20 years of research has covered issues of femicide, indigenous land rights, migration, and human rights.
