About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

BTI Engaging Rhetorics of Violence Against Women Conference 2015

This unique event presents both academic papers, as well as creative and project- based approaches to the many ways violence finds its form in the oppression and abuse of wo/men*.

Recognizing that this topic is multi-dimensional, we are pleased to present an interdisciplinary range of work that will explore (but by no means be limited to) the causes of violence through investigating narratives of violence, systems and institutions perpetuating violence, and violence implicit in language. We hope you will join the conversation and help engage in various ways of counteracting abuse and disarming violence through concrete and imaginative rebuilding.

* “Wo/men” is a word created by Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza to problematize gender binaries. It is used as an inclusive signifier of all genders, while at the same time having the ability to signify groups that are marginalized. We use this term because while this conference is inspired by the feminist liberation theological movements, this event and these conversations are open and accessible to all. 

We are very proud to note that Professor Nancy Pineda-Madrid (BC STM) and Professor Shelly Rambo (BUTH) are our keynote speakers.
