University College Cork, 26-27 June 2009

Proposals are invited for papers which focus on issues of contamination,
cross-fertilization or hybridization of the crime genre, in its literary
and screen manifestations, by other narrative forms, such as historical
narrative, social and/or political commentary, science fiction, ‘true
crime’, computer games, etc. Papers may refer to any language area,
although, in the interest of interdisciplinary debate, they must be
delivered in English.

Papers will be welcomed from a range of disciplines, including (but not
limited to) modern languages, film studies, literary and cultural
studies, gender studies, history, geography, sociology, and political

Abstracts (of 300 words maximum) and a short biography should be sent to to reach us no later than Friday, 27 February 2009.
Papers should be no more than twenty minutes in length
