Course Description

This class is offered as an online course.

This class will examine the worldwide popularity of the mystery/crime fiction literary genre through the lens of the BBC radio program “Foreign Bodies.” Through paired readings of novels, critical sources, and the BBC pod­casts, we will trace how the police procedural/detective drama genre conventions stay the same across conti­nents even as writers adapt key elements of the narrative conventions to better suit their legal systems and cultural contexts.
