From Marginal to Globalised Issue: Three Decades of Research and Activism on Violence Against Women

January 7, 2001


This is the text of Liz Kelly’s ‘Inaugural Professorial Lecture’, given at the (then) University of North London on July 4th 2001. It comprises a personal reflection on a history of visionary activism and engaged social research – three decades representing her feminist biography and the latter two her career in research. The lecture is in four parts, including: a brief overview of the three decades and the links with globalisation; how the work of CWASU is located within this; some shifts in her own thinking over the three decades, and the challenges for the future.

Presented at: Professor Liz Kelly’s Inaugural Professorial Lecture, University of North London, July 2001.
