Interdisciplinary Seminar  on Male Violences Against Women

Course contents

The Laboratory develops itself as a seminar where some multidisciplinary experts  will be introduced, aiming at raising awareness and knowledge about male violence against women and understanding the cultural, social, ethical and legal management of the phenomenon.

Therefore, the seminar covers the interdisciplinary study of issues related to the phenomenon of violence against women. This is done by way of lectures aimed at broadening the issues that can be embraced by scholars and experts and by way of students' interactive workshop aimed at highlighting the complexity of the phenomenon.

List of the seminars on Thursdays, from 14th October to 17th December 2021  h 17-19 (room D, viale Berti Pichat 6) will be available on the Italian version of this guide. For information on the previous editions of the Seminar, you can look here .

Erasmus and Overseas students who wish attend this Seminar-Laboratory can write to the teacher: pina.lalli@unibo.it before 14th October or register themselves participating to the first meeting.


A syllabus is gradually updated from the beginning of the seminar in a specific page of the website Osservatorio di ricerca sul femminicidio  (English version, too). 

Teaching methods

The course consists in at least 10 interactive  lectures, also with experts and students' workshops whose methods and organization will be introduced and discussed during the first meeting on 14th  October.


Assessment methods

b) Active involvement in workshops and training tests

c) only for Erasmus and Overseas incoming students: a brief paper on one of the workshop's topics, agreed with the teacher or the workshop's tutor (the paper can be written in Italian, French, English, Spanish); a meeting for the incoming students will be organized to explain and agree the goals of this brief paper. 

c) for other students: a final test by open and open-ended questions (see the Italian version).
