Humanities WA Program: A Nicer Kind of MurderMurderous Angel with a hatchet raised over their head. 

June 16, 6:30 pm.
Murder isn’t what it used to be. Explore the shifting role of the victim in detective novels, and how that shift reflects broader social changes.

 From Poe and Sherlock Holmes to British cozies and Hardboiled pulps, author Matthew Sullivan traces the many influence on the postwar and modern eras of the mystery genre and shows how empathy plays a unique role in contemporary crime novels—especially in today’s literary mysteries.

What do the way crime victims are portrayed say about a society’s culture? Join Sullivan to reflect on the special relationship between reading literature and experiencing empathy—on the page and in our daily lives.
