Xavier Guadalupe-Diaz's original research is the focus of his new book Transgressed (NYU Press). An alum of VCU's Department of Sociology, with a certificate in gender violence intervention, he returns to campus to share his research and engage in a dialogue with students, faculty, staff and community members. 

25 transpeople were murdered in 2019. Why? Is intimate partner violence a problem for men to deal with or for women? Or is it more complicated? How do we understand the violence in our most intimate relationships?

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

This event is free and open to all. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad Street, West Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, please call the VCU Libraries Events Office, at (804) 828-0593.


This event is organized by the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs and the Certificiate in Gender Violence Intervention Program in the VCU School of Social Work, with additional sponsorship by VCU Libraries.
