LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 1, 2003) -- The University of Kentucky is heading up an innovative research conference on violence against women, the inaugural national event for the UK Center for Research on Violence Against Women.

The conference, “Toward a National Research Agenda on Violence Against Women,” is being held today and tomorrow at the Marriott’s Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington. The meeting is designed specifically for researchers in the field of violence against women and other faculty and practitioners who may have an interest in this area of science.

The conference provides a review and critique of the literature in the field, as well as a poster session. Topics include measuring and defining violence against women, offender typologies, effects of violence, and special issues of women.

To facilitate the attendance of UK faculty and research staff, the center has offered scholarship opportunities. The center also has partnered with the UK President’s Commission on Women to make student scholarships available.
