For the second seminar in our speaker series, we will be joined by Dr Rita Segato from Universidade Brasilia, one of Latin America's most celebrated feminist anthropologists. Rita will speak about 'History and patriarchal violence', discussing the intersection of patriarchy and violence throughout history and the role of patriarchy in the development of our modern state.

Rita obtained her MA and PhD (1984) at the Department of Social Anthropology, Queens University, Belfast. She has been a professor of Anthropology in the University of Brasilia since 1985, and in 2011 moved to the Postgraduate Programme of Bioethics and Human Rights.
