LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 5, 2003) -- The University of Kentucky is offering a unique opportunity to attend 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,” will be held Oct. 1-2 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 who may have an interest in this area of science.

The conference will provide a review and critique of the literature in the field, as well as a poster session, offering an opportunity to highlight the work of UK faculty
and graduate students. Topics will 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 is offering scholarship opportunities. The center also is partnering with the President’s Commission on Women to make student scholarships available.

Faculty and students interested in scholarships, or members of the public interested in attending the conference, should e-mail carolj@email.uky.edu. For more information, visit the Web site.
