Abstract [en]

The crimes of mass shooting have occurred with more frequency and regularity over the last ten years. The literature has included many new studies using intersectional analysis that promise a new approach to analysing the motivations of mass shooters. The aim of the study was to survey and summarise the scholarly literature on motivations of mass shooters, intersectionality, and related theories, particularly in criminology and sociology. The researcher sought to understand how recent literature used an intersectional lens to analyse motivations of mass shooters. As a result, 10 studies that included an intersectional analysis, along with alternative analysis types, were included in the review. Method was systematic literature review using the PRISMA statement. Along with the inherent limitations to the method used, some specific limitations exist in relation with the narrative types of some studies included. Results included that analysis based on personality disorders was frequent in the psychiatry literature, while a hybrid approach has been used in the criminology literature. Purely intersectional analyses are more often used in the sociology literature on mass shooters. Intersectionality theory has not yet been empirically tested in the Criminological field. Future research should focus on qualitatively measuring to what extent are the discussed components of identity prevalent in the mass shootings perpetrators.
