On Friday 3rd of July 2017, the UJI project FEM2016-65834-C2-2-P organised a discussion group with international experts who debated about the role of testimony in the representation of violence against women in different narrative contexts. During the session, topics such as the problematic of the revictimisation of women in audiovisual stories about gender violence were addressed, and there was a debate on the potentials some approaches in contemporary mainstream audiovisual culture pose by challenging this type of disempowering representations and opting for the construction of an active feminine subject.
The event included contributions from Giulia Collaizzi, (Professor of Audiovisual Communication and Advertising at the University of Valencia), Duncan Wheeler (Professor of Hispanic Studies at the University of Leeds, United Kingdom), Virginia Villaplana (writer, visual artist and lecturer in Audiovisual Communication at the University of Murcia), Agustín Rico Albero (Senior Lecturer in Hispanic Filmography at the University of Hertfordshire, United Kingdom), Isabel Menéndez Menéndez (Lecturer in Audiovisual Communication and Advertising at the University of Burgos and accredited as Professor), Leticia Sabsay (Assistant Professor at the Gender Institute of the London School of Economics, in the United Kingdom, and co-editor with Judith Butler of Vulnerability in Resistance, 2016) and María José Gámez, PI of the project.
