Crime fiction is one of the most elastic formulas in genre fiction; it can be different things to different people at different times. There’s the whodunnit, the whydunnit, the howdunnit. As a rich and valuable literary genre, it appeals to all levels of readers and culture and scholarship. Crime fiction crosses national borders, time periods, languages, genres and boundaries between the literature and other arts.We are interested in any and all topics about or related to mystery, thrillers, detective and crime fiction and its representations in popular culture.
Proposals may be for individual papers or 3-person panels.
Submit a one-page (200-250 words) proposal or abstract by 30 April 2014 to the Mystery/Thrillers area on the MPCA/ACA website <http://submissions.mpcaaca.org>. Please include name, affiliation, and e-mail address with your abstract. MPCA/ACA can provide an LCD projector for presentations, but it must be requested with your proposal. If necessary, indicate and submit potential scheduling conflicts along with your proposal. If you wish your presentation to be listed as MACA (rather than MPCA), please include this request with your proposal.
More conference information can be found at <http://www.mpcaaca.org/>.
