Project Safe Center staff will offer a presentation Oct. 15 examining the ways in which language reflects and sometimes perpetuates violence in our culture. The presentation in Rand Hall, Room 308, is open to all Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff.

By exploring common vernacular, phrases, slang terms and more, participants will learn how insidious language can be and how to more carefully examine the way culture describes and speaks about intimacy, women and sexual violence. Time will be spent specifically looking at different forms of media and the everyday use of words.
