ANTHROPOLOGY / SOCIOLOGY SEMINAR SERIES, SEMESTER 1, 2017 : “Violence is not part of our culture”: Ruminations about violence, culture and gender. Other events...
Over the last 20 or so years in Fiji, the statements of iTaukei chiefs on gender violence have appeared to contradict the statements of gender activists who claim that Fiji sustains a rape culture. It is this contradiction and my involvement with development projects aiming to eliminate gender violence that has provoked me to revisit a broad spectrum of social theory in order to understand the way in which gender is implicated in the relationship between culture and violence. In doing so, I question whether gender violence can truly be eliminated, if only because it is legitimated in diverse ways by overlapping imaginaries in indigenous and colonial traditions, as well as contemporary global practices.
