RARA-AVIS: Doctorate on serial killer books

From: Juri Nummelin ( jurnum@utu.fi)
Date: 07 Mar 2000

This came to me through another list. It's in Finnish, but I'll translate some of it.

This Maarit Piipponen, of Tampere University, is going to be a Ph.D. and her dissertation (is this the right word?) is about the serial killers in Patricia Conrwell's works. The dissertation is called "(No) More Family: Reading Family and Serial Murder in Cornwell's Gault Trilogy". The other one, who debates (I don't know the word in English for this), is Judith Halberstaum of University of California, San Diego. She has written books "Skin Show: Gothic Horror and the Technology of Monsters" and "Female Masculinity". There's no information about the nature of these works, but they sure seem to have something to do with things we've been discussing in Rara-avis. (Well, I haven't, but someone else has.)

Sorry about the 䭠and tters, if they don't show properly.
