“Daring Second Glances: Rereading the Rape Narrative” elicits new perspectives on well-known texts that depict sexual violence. This panel seeks to curate a trans-historical discussion about new ways to approach representations of sexual violence. In her book Framing the Rape Victim, Carine Mardorossian argues that postmodern feminists of the 1990s ironically placed the onus of rape deterrence back on women when they “began locating the source of women’s sexual oppression in the representational and rhetorical codes of feminism rather than in societal norms” (42).
