The UCLA Center for 17th & 18th Century Studies is hosting a lecture on the stories of Native women who came forward with tales of abuse, which provide important insights into their lives and experiences in the 1600s and 1700s.

All is well except the women: Violence, Gender, and Native Women in the La Florida” will be held Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 4 to 5 p.m. in Royce Hall Herbert Morris Seminar Room 306. Alejandra Dubcovsky, associate professor of history at UC Riverside, will present the talk. Her research areas include early America, Spanish borderlands, and history of the American South and American Indians.

The lecture will cover the gendered effects of the region’s rising violence and how Native women were central to the making and unmaking of the colonial world.

Dubcovsky’s talk is the Early Modernisms Cosmopolitanisms Lecture. The event is free and does not require a registration.
