What They’re Reading: Wendy Gamber
Posted June 14, 2011
Book recommendations from experts in the fields of sexuality, gender, health, science and relationships
Wendy Gamber, Professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University, is reading The Body in the Reservoir: Murder & Sensationalism in the South (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2008) by Michael Ayers Trotti.
“This is a terrific book about murder, gender, sexuality, race, and mass culture in Richmond, Virginia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Because I’m writing a book about an alleged (and probably actual) Indianapolis murderess, The Body in the Reservoir is a must-read for me.”
