A growing body of research from criminology, psychology, sociology, media studies and gender studies focuses on gender in relation to crime. How are the social constructions of masculinity and femininity, within and across cultures, implicated in the conduct and character of crime? The unit explores this central question across a range of topics such as domestic violence and terrorism. We also consider intersecting identities, including race and ethnicity, class, sexuality, and religion, in the construction of both perpetrators and victims of crime. The unit's focus on conflicts and displacements allows it to move from the personal to the transnational, from the intimate sphere to global geopolitics.
