This essay collection will focus upon the intersection of personal narrative and conceptions of self constructed through the lens of queer theory. In order for us to wriggle free of the shackles forged by the modern construct of the individual imbued with an infallible facility for self-sovereignty and an impervious, fixed identity, we must first acknowledge the fluidity, illogicality, and unpredictability which characterize most of our lived experiences.

As popular genres, mystery and detective fiction reflect a wide range of changes in society, including representations of detectives and other characters from an increasingly wide range of racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual identities, as well as from a growing range of geographical and urban/rural locations, so in keeping with the theme of this year's SWPACA conference ("Many Faces, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture"), submissions are particularly invited that consider mystery and detective fiction in conjunction with the idea of a diversity of faces and voices in popular and American culture.
