Crime and the City - One day symposium




Registration is now closed

The city is one of the most characteristic settings of crime fiction, from nineteenth-century Newgate Novels to late-Victorian detective stories, from twentieth-century noir and hard-boiled fiction to recent police procedurals. The urban setting helps to create an atmosphere of mystery and menace but also facilitates certain kinds of criminal activity. This one-day symposium brings together crime fiction critics and writers to examine the relationship between crime writing and the city.
