HIST 608 - Women & Crime in US Memory

3
This advanced seminar explores how gender norms have influenced popular media and historical scholarship on women criminals and victims of crime in American historical memory. We will deconstruct select “crimes of the century” and determine how definations of “victims” and “perpetrators” are altered through the lens of gender, class, and racial analysis. Potential themes include motherhood and 1950s adoption ring cases and multiculturalism and 1990s police brutality trails. The end product will be an extensive research project.
Components: Lecture
Grading Method: R, P/F, A
