On Saturday, December 11, Tilburg Law School alumna Dr. Eva Mulder will introduce the film Hysterical Girl in Tilburg and talk about her research into the reactions of the social environment to victims of sexual violence. The film is about a patient of Sigmund Freud and will be screened during the InScience Film Festival on Tour at cinema Cinecitta in Tilburg in collaboration with Studium Generale and Science Café Tilburg.

In anticipation of the film screening in Cinecitta, Dr. Eva Mulder also wrote the opinion piece "Listen, think and take the speaker seriously" in the Brabants Dagblad of Thursday, December 9 (see premium artikel online in Dutch).

Eva Mulder received her PhD from Tilburg University and is now working at Regioplan Beleidsonderzoek. Among other things, she discovered that ideas about what is 'normal' play a major role in the reactions to stories of victims of sexual violence (see the press release Stereotypes determine responses to sexual violence).

On Saturday December 11, besides the film Hysterical Girl, more films can be seen during the InScience Film Festival. For the complete program see the website of Studium Generale.
