PowerPoint shown by Dr. Anna Pasolini (Università degli Studi di Milano) as part of the Criminal Hero conference panel “Cattivo. Cattivissimo. Cattivo?” (4/12/14)
The presentation is entitled “Cattivi a confronto: costruzione e decostruzione dell’eroe criminale in We Need to Talk about Kevin” (“Comparing criminals: costruction and deconstruction of the criminal hero in We Need to Talk about Kevin”). Examining both the novel and the movie of the same title, the talk explores the relationship between the criminal hero, the construction of gendered stereotypes, and the narrative formuals of crime fiction.
