Using Oral History to Find New Solutions to Intimate Violence

WHO: Alisa Del Tufo, in a career dedicated to ending violence in the lives of women and girls, has founded three organizations: Sanctuary for Families, CONNECT, and Threshold Collaborative. She is the author of two books on domestic violence and child abuse, the recipient of Union Theological Seminary’s prestigious Distinguished Alumna Award, and Colgate University’s Humanitarian Award in 2008. She has used oral history as a method of finding new ways to address the complex issues of intimate partner and domestic violence since 1991.

WHEN: Thursday, January 31, 2013, 6:00-8:00pm.

WHERE: Columbia University, Knox Hall, Room 509, 550 West 606 West 122nd Street, 5th floor.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: In 1991 Del Tufo launched an oral history project with battered women who had children to develop a better understanding of the ways they felt help could be provided. The insights surfaced through these stories have influenced the development of programs, research, policy, movement building and advocacy. Her oral history work has also focused on the stories of men and youth; all with the goal of surfacing new ways to impact and change abusive behaviors. In this workshop she will share the history of this work and some of the sea changing ideas that have grown from it.

SPONSORS: This talk is part of the “Paul F. Lazarsfeld Lecture Series,” co-sponsored by the Columbia Center for Oral History (CCOH), Oral History Master of Arts Program (OHMA), the Columbia University School of Social Work and the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law. Support from the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics (INCITE) is provided for programming that embodies late Professor Paul Lazarsfeld’s commitment to improving methodological approaches that address concerns of vital cultural and social significance.
