In July, I will be traveling to Oxford, UK in order to present my research on gendered infanticide to a selected panel of interdisciplinary researchers.
11th Global Conference of the Inter-Disciplinary Network Organization:
Monsters and the Monstrous: Myths & Metaphors of Enduring Evil
„Killing Parents: How Gender Turns Some into Monsters and Others into Victims“
highlights how society’s construction of gender roles leads to a differing evaluation of fathers and mothers who kill their children. The extended suicide will play a role as well. You can read the abstract of the presentation here.
