About the research
"Muy exclusivo: las fotos del horror" is written on the cover of this Argentine newspaper. This headline refers to the photographs of the dead body of a young woman that the journalists shamelessly published. "Fortunately, there are also writers in Latin America who describe gender violence in a more ethical way", says Eva Van Hoey (UGent). In her PhD she investigates how gender violence is represented in the literary genre of the chronicle.
