Keynote speaker: Dr Sarah Churchwell (University of East Anglia)

Identity remains one of the most central and most contested concepts in circulation today. No individual or group can escape the question of identity in a range of categories be it gender, class, nationality or race. Yet, an understanding of one's 'self' in relation to these somewhat rigid categories is problematic and as a result representations of identity are continually plagued by an irresolvable sense of unease and anxiety.

The Mystery/Detective Fiction section of the Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association invites proposals for the 2010 conference in Albuquerque.  The exact days/times of our panels are yet to be determined, but the conference is always held Wed.-Sat. in mid February.

We invite proposals on any topic involving Detective/Mystery fiction.  However, we especially invite proposals on authors who write in less commonly spoken languages; proposals dealing with female, minority, and GLTB authors; and proposals which analyze literature and/or film from different literary standpoints (feminist, psychoanalytical, Marxist, etc.).  In other words, Detective/Mystery fiction is more than Sherlock Holmes.
