This study day, organised by the European Studies department of the British Library, explores contemporary crime fiction from across Continental Europe.
The speakers will include academics, publishers, writers and translators. Among the topics covered will be crime fiction as a vehicle for social and political analysis, both contemporary and historical, and the part crime fiction has to play in the transmission of European cultures. The day is principally as a seminar for researchers but the contributions will appeal to an audience of specialists and non-specialists.
When: Fri 18 Nov 2011, 09.30 – 17.15
Where: Conference Centre, British Library
