From the Paper:

"This research examines ways in which social experience informs conscience and behavior with reference to Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment" and Glaspell's play "Trifles" and the short story on which it was based, "A Jury of Her Peers." The research will set forth the cultural context of each narrative and then compare and contrast how conscience-related issues are treated by the texts with a view toward identifying ways in which inter penetrations of conscience and social constructs affect or explain behavior."
