"Just months after Rebekah Roberts was born, her mother, an Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn, abandoned her Christian boyfriend and newborn baby to return to her religion. Neither Rebekah nor her father have heard from her since. Now a recent college graduate, Rebekah has moved to New York City to follow her dream of becoming a big-city reporter. But she's also drawn to the idea of being closer to her mother, who might still be living in the Hasidic community in Brooklyn. Then Rebekah is called to cover the story of a murdered Hasidic woman. Rebekah's shocked to learn that, because of the NYPD's habit of kowtowing to the powerful ultra-Orthodox community, not only will the woman be buried without an autopsy, her killer may get away with murder. Rebekah can't let the story end there. But getting to the truth won't be easy--even as she immerses herself in the cloistered world where her mother grew up, it's clear that she's not welcome, and everyone she meets has a secret to keep from an outsider. In her riveting debut, journalist Julia Dahl introduces a compelling new character in search of the truth about a murder and an understanding of her own heritage"--

"New York City tabloid reporter Rebekah Roberts knows almost nothing about the mother who abandoned her as an infant. Aviva Kagan was just a teenager when she left her Hasidic Jewish life in Brooklyn for a fling with a college boy from Florida - and then disappeared. When Rebekah hears about a young Hasidic mother found dead in her bathtub in upstate New York, she thinks there might be a story in it. And as she looks closer, she discovers that the woman once knew Aviva's younger brother, Sam. Rebekah realizes she might finally be in a position to meet her mother, but the more she learns about the woman's death, the more she begins to fear that Sam might be a ticking time bomb - whose anger is aimed at the strict Jewish community he left behind. In the sequel to her Edgar Award-nominated Invisible City, Julia Dahl has created another powerful novel, at once an examination of the demons we inherit and a taut mystery that will grip readers from the opening page to the stunning conclusion"--
Conviction by Julia Dahl( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the summer of 1992, a year after riots exploded between black and Jewish neighbors in Crown Heights, a black family is brutally murdered in their Brooklyn home. A teenager is quickly convicted, and the justice system moves on. Twenty-two years later, journalist Rebekah Roberts gets a letter: I didn't do it. Frustrated with her work at the city's sleaziest tabloid, Rebekah starts to dig. But witnesses are missing, memories faded, and almost no one wants to talk about that grim, violent time in New York City--not even Saul Katz, a former cop and her source in Brooklyn's insular Hasidic community. So she goes it alone. And as she gets closer to the truth of that night, Rebekah finds herself in the path of a killer with two decades of secrets to protect. From the author of the Edgar-nominated Invisible City comes another timely thriller that illuminates society's darkest corners. Told in part through the eyes of a jittery eyewitness and the massacre's sole survivor, Julia Dahl's Conviction examines the power--and cost--of community, loyalty, and denial."--

Women's Under-Confidence and Men's Over-Confidence in STEM by Julia Dahl( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Why are men more confident than women in science, technology, engineering, and math (i.e., STEM)? Prior research implies that the gap can be explained by womens under-confidence. However, I examine whether, in addition, men are over-confident. This study used a longitudinal field experiment to collect confidence surveys from students enrolled in a challenging gateway STEM course for three weeks. The student participants were randomly assigned to receive either a control or self-affirmation intervention, which was expected to mitigate students under- or over-confidence. Under- and over-confidence was estimated by determining the discrepancies between students reported confidence and level of confidence expected based on their prior performance in relevant courses. Prior performance was obtained from students official transcripts. First, I examined average (across all study days) confidence discrepancy scores by gender and condition. Consistent with predictions, in the control condition, women had negative average confidence discrepancies while men had positive average confidence discrepancies. However, contrary to predictions, there were no intervention effects for womens average discrepancies, and for men, there was one intervention effect such that men in the affirmation condition had larger positive discrepancies than those in the control. Second, I examined confidence discrepancy scores longitudinally by gender and condition. In the control condition, womens negative discrepancies did not change whereas mens positive discrepancies increased (became more discrepant) over time. Among women, compared with those in the control, those in the affirmation condition had increased negative discrepancies (became less discrepant over time). Among men, compared with those in the control, those in the affirmation condition had increased positive discrepancies (became more discrepant over time)
