Martín Hernán Di Marco is a postdoctoral researcher in the CRIMLA project. His current focus is on the study of life stories and institutional trajectories of men who have committed intentional homicide (homicide or femicide/feminicide). Drawing upon narrative criminology, masculinities studies and anthropology of violence, he has analysed how violent deaths are signified and “located” in life stories, how their relevance is discursively managed and which are the predominant scripts at-hand to legitimise the perpetration of lethal violence. He is keenly interested in unwrapping the narrative reconstruction of these lives, understanding the processes that shape how physical violence is learned and signified, and discussing the methodological specificities of qualitative research on this topic.


    Martín Hernán Di Marco holds a PhD in Social Sciences from Buenos Aires University, Argentina. He has a BA and a Teaching Degree in Sociology (Buenos Aires University, Argentina), a MSc in Epidemiology, Management and Health Policies (Lanús National University, Argentina) and a Diploma in Juvenicide (Colef, Mexico).
