    Representations of Rurality in Crime Fiction and Media Culture

    Interdisciplinary Approaches to "Setting the Scene"

    The Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities at Queen’s University organises a two day Symposium in June 2015  (15 & 16th) as part of its theme of "Creativity in Imagined and Material Worlds". Devoted to representations of the rural,  it will bring together studies in crime fiction and media culture looking at a variety of outlets such as fiction, film, television, comics, games and many others and inspect their various engagements  with the concept of "rurality". Interdisciplinary papers are welcomed, but not contained to, Anthropology, Modern Languages, English, Film and Media Studies, History, Cultural Studies, Historical/Cultural/Rural Geography, Sociology, Spatial Planning. By bringing together an interdisciplinary group we will address how cultural constructions of the rural often ‘set the scene’ for crime fiction.
