Civic Life Lunch – Is Rape a Crime? A Memoir, Investigation & Manifesto

Monday, October 26 | 12 PM ET | Virtual Event

Join Tisch College for a conversation with author and Executive Director of Health & Wellness at Tufts, Michelle Bowdler, MSPH. Bowdler’s most recent book “Is Rape a Crime?: A Memoir, an Investigation, and a Manifesto” applies a social justice and historical lens to the way rape and sexual assault are addressed by the criminal justice system and society at large and its impact, and it was recently longlisted for the National Book Award. In her role at Tufts, Bowdler oversees health services, counseling and mental health services, health promotion, and the Center for Awareness, Resources, and Education (CARE) at Tufts. The conversation will be moderated by Tisch College Senior Fellow Grace Talusan. Talusan is an award-winning author who was awarded the 2017 Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing for Nonfiction for "The Body Papers," a memoir that chronicles her life as a Filipina immigrant and survivor of trauma and illness. "The Body Papers" is the winner of the Massachusetts Book Award for Non-Fiction.

This event is sponsored by Tisch College, the School of Arts & Sciences, and the Center for Awareness, Resources, and Education (CARE) at Tufts.
