Upcoming Webinar: Exploring challenges and opportunities through the lens of LGBT+ domestic homicide
DATE & TIME: 13 December 2019 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
England and Wales have been undertaking Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) since 2011.
Offering both a practitioner and researcher perspective, James Rowlands will provide an overview of policy and practice in England and Wales and draw on key issues in the conceptualization and function of DHRs. He will highlight the unique challenges of the DHR process with reference to minoritized communities. Using the example of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT+) victims of domestic homicide, his focus will be two-fold: 1) the question of who becomes the subject of a DHR, exploring why some LGBT+ victims are included while others are excluded and 2) how knowledge generation operates, mapping how particular discursive practices frame inquiry in relation to LGBT+ victims and shape knowledge production.
