The essays in Killing Women: The Visual Culture of Gender and Violence find important connections in the ways that women are portrayed in relation to violence, whether they are murder victims or killers. The book’s extensive cultural contexts acknowledge and engage with contemporary theories and practices of identity politics and debates about the ethics and politics of representation itself. Does representation produce or reproduce the conditions of violence? Is representation itself a form of violence? This book adds significant new dimensions to the characterization of gender and violence by discussing nationalism and war, feminist media, and the depiction of violence throughout society.

Lange schwarze Haare, weiße Kleider, schlaff herabhängende Arme - die weiblichen Geister des japanischen Horrorfilms sind zu Prototypen des Unheimlichen avanciert, die weltweit kopiert werden. Doch woher stammen diese Wesen und was treibt sie an? Elisabeth Scherer verfolgt die Spur der Totengeister (yûrei) in der japanischen Kulturgeschichte und stößt dabei auf eine Fülle von Vorbildern u.a. aus Volkserzählungen, Kabuki-Stücken und Ukiyo-e. In der Analyse japanischer Geisterfilme zeigt sich ein dichtes Geflecht aus Überlieferungen und neueren Angstmotiven - wie etwa dem Verlust familiärer Strukturen, Gender-Konflikten und urbaner Vereinsamung.

Based on case studies from Canada, the US, UK and Australia, this book examines the ways in which female killers are constructed in the media, in law and in feminist discourse almost invariably as victims rather than as actors in the crimes they commit. Morrissey argues that by denying the possibility of female agency in crimes of torture, rape and murder, feminist theorists are, with the best of intentions, actually denying women the full freedom to be human. The case studies cover, among others, the battered wife Pamela Sainsbury, who killed her husband as he slept, the serial killer Aileen Wournos, who murdered seven middle-aged men in Florida between 1989 and 1990, Tracey Wiggington, the so-called 'lesbian vampire killer', and Karla Homolka who helped her husband kill two teenage girls in St. Catherines, Ontario in 1993. This radical new book will be provocative reading for students and scholars alike in gender studies, criminology and cultural studies.

How is visual culture gendered? Can one refer to a move beyond gender in terms of a trans-gendered visual culture or are we still caught up in the same debilitating role models? How does one address the ever-increasing alienation between gender studies and the younger generation of students and scholars moving into higher education? What is the role of gender as interdisciplinary tool in the academic analysis of visual culture as it spans across several subjects, such as science, social work, technology, psychology, medicine, philosophy, sociology, engineering, communication, economics, religious studies, business management, anthropology, geography, historical studies, cultural and media studies, visual studies, art history and literature studies?.
