ALA symposia provide opportunities for scholars to meet in pleasant settings, present papers, and share ideas and resources. The March 2017 symposium will focus on American crime fiction, ranging from Poe to the present and beyond, and including all varieties of the genre, from hard-boiled to puzzle mysteries, locked rooms to global conspiracies, dime novels to experimental texts. Subjects might include, but are not limited to, the following:

Crime fiction and space; representing class, race, and gender; periodizing the genre; Poe’s precursors; narrative technique; adaptations; the future of the genre; teaching crime fiction; literary vs genre fiction.
