Breaking the Codes: Female Criminality in Fin-de-Siecle Paris
Ann-Louise Shapiro (au)
A cultural history of the fin-de-siecle that uses the “problem” of the female criminal (FC) to examine both the debates around the appropriate place of women in French society & the ways in which issues of gender were central to the most important cultural transformations of the period. The story of female criminality was a story about the pain of social change. It often read like melodrama, casting deviant women in leading roles. Yet in their move from the household into the public arena of the courtroom, the FC turned melodrama back into politics. Contents: Crime & Culture: The “Problem” of the FC; Telling Criminal Stories; Disordered Bodies, Disorderly Acts: Medical Discourse & the FC; Love Stories: Female Crimes of Passion; & Sexual Politics of FC.
