“Women and Crime in the German Context”

When thinking about women’s relationship to crime, the woman is depicted largely as the passive object, as the victim of a violent act performed by a male perpetrator. This perception of the woman as victim raises a number of questions about the relationship of women to crime.

We seek papers that both analyze and challenge the notion of the passive female in crime from the nineteenth through the twenty-first century. Topics might include but are not limited to:

** Women in crime narrative: representation of women as victims, perpetrators, spectators, and/or detectives
** Women as victims of crime: the gendered crime (rape, domestic violence, and women as spoils of war)
** Changing notions of crime as it relates to women: religious aspects (crime vs. sin) and the development of the judicial system; issues of prostitution or abortion
** Women as perpetrators: becoming a criminal; the notion of prosecution vs. persecution; the female terrorist

Please email a 250-500 word abstract including your contact information to all three panel organizers by March 15, 2007.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
