Crime Fiction: Here and There and Again

Crime Fiction: Here and There and Again

  • czwartek, 11 września 2014 roku, 9:30 do sobota, 13 września 2014 roku, 14:00
Crime narratives are among the most popular forms of storytelling worldwide and have played a central 
role in the development of national literatures. Detective and crime novels have developed beyond borders 
marked by language, culture and genre. The ability to replicate, explore, and interrogate its own 
conventions is one of the defining features of all types of crime fiction. The recent worldwide success of 
Scandinavian crime fiction shows that crime novels can be successfully translated into other languages 
and appropriated for other cultures.
The aim of the conference is to discuss crime fiction across national borders, across cultures, across 
languages, across genres, across arts and across different media. We invite papers which deal with one or 
more of the following points (the list is by no means exhaustive), in any given literature and country, or in 
international comparison:
 Crime fiction and cultural/national identities
 Crime fiction and ethnic minorities
 Others and Otherness 
 Transnational, translocal and transcultural crime narratives
 Crime Spaces
 Borrowings, adaptations and transformations
 Crime fiction in translation
 International bestsellers
 Crime Fiction as Cultural Export
 Exploding the Canon: forgotten crime narratives
