Thesis title: Female Protagonists of Genocidal Rape

Katerina is a PhD student in the School of Arts and Humanities. Katerina's thesis, entitled Female Protagonists of Genocidal Rape, focuses on women actively involved in the campaigns of genocidal rape during the war in the former Yugoslavia and genocide in Rwanda.

The notion of representation of women transgressing the ideal-typical peaceful and nurturing motherly stereotype as mentally / sexually disturbed or manipulated by men is studied from a critical perspective, arguing that such representation (both in the media and court hearings) marginalises female political agency and rationality.
