The Evolving Definitions of Femicide: Cristina Alcalde

Earlier this year, the Catholic University of Peru selected Associate Professor Cristina Alcalde of the Department of Gender & Women's Studies to be one of six international visiting professors and scholars.
 
Alcalde spent her time at the university teaching a graduate seminar on femicide and violence against women. This opportunity to travel and teach abroad allowed Alcalde to investigate new areas of research and explore international experiences separate from those in America. 
 
In this podcast, Alcalde discusses her trip, issues and research around femicide, and how American understandings of femicide contrast with those internationally.
