MAPACA -- Detective Fiction Panel; Alexandria, VA, 10/28/10-10/31/10 (Submissions Due 6/15/10)
The Detective Fiction Area welcomes proposals on all aspects and periods of mystery and detective fiction. This includes ancient and modern precursors to Poe's "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" (1841), as well as successors working in the multitude of sub-genres falling under the larger designations of detective, mystery, or crime fiction. Proposals that address the intersection of detective fiction with other media (e.g., graphic novels, film, television, etc.) and genres (e.g., sci-fi, horror, domestic fiction, etc.) are especially welcome.
