Investigating a topic in mystery or detective fiction?
Present your conclusions at the 2008 PCA Conference!
We welcome proposals for individual papers or panels on any aspect of mystery & detective fiction, including history, criticism, theory, and current trends.
Topics of particular interest for this conference are works by San Francisco or California mystery writers or the use of the West Coast as a setting in mysteries. Also of interest are works that deal with the transformation of mysteries from written texts into films or other media, and the the appearance of mysteries in works that cross genre boundaries such as computer games, graphic novels, film, and television.
Proposals must include a title and an abstract of 150-250 words. Submit proposals to one program area only.
Please include complete contact information (name, home address, email, phone, affiliation if any). Also, categorize your paper by type of detective fiction such as “cozy,” “noir,” “feminist,” “hard-boiled,” etc.
Proposals are due Thursday, November 1, 2007.
[Receipt by Monday, October 15, 2007 greatly appreciated.]
