The detective fiction of the past decades reflects globalizing trends in the world in various ways. Authors from as diverse national backgrounds as Paul Auster, Ricardo Piglia, Orhan Pamuk and Haruki Murakami have tried their hands at the genre, reframing its Anglo-American heritage in ways that question commonly held metaphysical, epistemological and political premises. This seminar will adopt a global perspective in its approach to the genre of detective fiction. We invite papers which explore detective stories, novellas, and novels from a variety of critical angles.
