We are a group of academics who are passionate about crime narratives. We are interested in studying crime fiction across national borders, across time periods, across languages, across genres and across boundaries between the literature and the other arts (film, theatre, graphic novel etc.)
We aim to provide an interdisciplinary forum for lively discussion and critical debate concerning all manifestations of crime fiction. We also seek to establish an internet-based community of scholars, writers and crime fiction enthusiasts, and to serve as a platform for the dissemination of information relevant to our interests. In addition to news about conferences and events, the site is going to feature reviews and interviews with crime writers.
Crime Fiction Here and There is a point of contact and a discussion forum for anyone who is interested in reading, studying and writing about crime fiction.
