Women in Crime: victims, perpetrators and detectives in post-transitional South African crime fiction


Binder, Sabine. Women in Crime: victims, perpetrators and detectives in post-transitional South African crime fiction. 2018, University of Zurich, Faculty of Arts.

Abstract

Considering a wide range of recent South African crime novels, Women in Crime offers the first extensive analysis of the intricate ways in which crime fictional female characters resonate with the country’s widespread and persistent real crimes against women. It critically maps the cultural and gender political work of South African crime novels and demonstrates that precisely by tapping into violence, misogyny and racism, the genre offers a vibrant platform for social, cultural and ethical debates and interventions.
