Disclosing the Darkness of Rape

Location: UH Hilo Sodexo Dining Hall

UH Hilo Student Health & Wellness Programs invites you to a presentation entitled: "Disclosing the Darkness of Rape and Revealing the Dangers of Indifference" with Dr. Rachel Griffin. During this keynote, Dr. Rachel Alicia Griffin will struggle in/with/through the complexities of sexual violence as a survivor of color. More specifically, she will explore how accessing survivor-friendly resources help empowered her to emerge from the darkness of rape and enabled her to heal, genuinely smile, and, eventually, advocate nationally and internationally against sexual violence. Her keynote responds to the following questions: How does sexual violence stifle the ability of our friends, roommates, partners, and peers to flourish? What can feminism teach us about sexual violence? What does “enthusiastic consent” look like and feel like? How can men be involved in raising consciousness about men’s violence against women? With diverse groups of survivors of sexual violence in mind, how can students create an inclusive and healthy campus? These questions and others will be raised as points of contemplation around which possibilities, rather than answers, will be raised.


Rachel Alicia Griffin, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Southern Illinois University (SIU), cross-appointed in Africana Studies and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. As a critical intercultural scholar, her research interests span Black feminist thought, critical race theory, education, popular culture, sport, and sexual violence. In 2012 Dr. Griffin was awarded the Judge William Holmes Cook Professorship by the Office of the Associate Chancellor for Institutional Diversity at SIU and in 2013 she was awarded the College of Liberal Arts Early Career Faculty Excellence Award at SIU. Recently tenured, Dr. Griffin has published in several edited collections, Women’s Studies in Communication, Critical Studies in Media Communication, the International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, and The Howard Journal of Communications. She has delivered well over 100 presentations on campuses and at conferences nationally and internationally—and especially prizes having spoken for U.S. state coalitions against sexual violence in North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Maryland, and California.
