Tabloid Justice, She-Devils, Femme Fatales, and the Amanda Knox Case

Nickie Phillips (Associate Professor, SFC) discusses the investigation, conviction, and ultimate acquittal of American college student Amanda Knox in the murder of her roommate in Italy. Prof. Phillips applies a cultural criminological framework analyzing how persistent gendered myths around female sexual deviance informed the investigation, conviction, and eventual acquittal of Knox, with a focus on the role of media in this miscarriage of justice.
