Fridays at Newcomb

Susan Smith and the Mommy Myth: Infanticide and the Politics of Gender

featuring Keira Williams

Date: Friday, February 22, 2013
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Building: Caroline Richardson Building, Anna Many Lounge
Location: uptown campus

 In 1994, Susan Smith captured the world's attention when she reported her two young sons kidnapped by an African American male carjacker but later confessed to their murder by rolling her car, with the boys strapped safely in their car seats, into a local lake. Legal experts and psychiatrists speculated about what could drive a mother to commit this most heinous crime. Williams places the Smith case within the historical context of the changing politics of gender at the end of the twentieth century.
Dr. Williams teaches in the Honors and Women's and Gender Studies Programs at Coastal Carolina University and was a visiting scholar at the Newcomb College Center for Research on Women at Tulane in 2005.
