This special issue of FULGOR is one product of the project titled “Indelible (Eng) / Indelebile (It): Representation in the Arts of (In)Visible Violence Against Women and their Resistance” sponsored by the Australasian Centre for Italian Studies (ACIS) over the period 2018-2022. The Visual and Performance Studies (VPS) Research Group that was formed under the auspices of ACIS in 2018 chose as the theme of this major project an exploration of ways in which the Arts can make visible the often invisible and yet indelible acts of violence perpetrated against women and girls (VAWG) every day, and by linking them demonstrate just how necessary it is to break the chain. Visual and performing arts are instrumental in exposing the
complexity of the numerous forms that such violence can take in the contemporary world, as well as exploring new and old forms of resistance. Though our various initiatives we strove to contribute to the “glocal” conversation on the topic and at the same time raise awareness of theglobal extent of the problem.
