Saturday, November 2, 2013 - 10:42pm
Ali Kulez / University of Southern California

Marx and Engels observe in The Communist Manifesto that capitalist exploitation has given a "cosmopolitan" character to production and consumption, be it material or cultural. This observation seems to hold even truer today: economies grow closely interdependent, capital crosses national boundaries with ease, and literature presents itself more than ever as a global system, blurring the demarcation lines between capital and periphery. The detective fiction of the past decades reflects these globalizing trends in various ways.

University of Bielsko-Biała, Poland

Dates: 25—27 June 2014
Venue: University of Bielsko-Biała, Poland

Revolting Peripheries

I am located in the margin. I make a definite distinction between that marginality which is imposed by oppressive structures and that marginality one chooses as site of resistance – as location of radical openness and possibility.
- bell hooks -

Although not consciously perhaps, the periphery is an idea that is willed, and it governs perception under the quiet dictates of interest.
- Timothy Brennan -
