The DETECt consortium will meet in QUB 20- 22 March for a three-day marathon of research and dissemination events.
DETECt – Detecting Transcultural Identity in European Popular Crime Narratives – addresses the formation of European cultural identity as a continuing process of transformation fostered by the mobility of people, products and representations across the continent. Because of the extraordinary mobility of its products, popular culture plays a decisive role in circulating representations that constitute a shared cultural asset for large sectors of the European society.
Between March 20 and March 22, the partners will gather at Queen’s University Belfast to review the work done during the first year of the project and plan future initiatives. The intense agenda includes a thorough discussion of each work package, as well as additional working groups focusing on specific activities such as the design of the DETECt mobile app and Learning Community, as well as research themes such as the representation of European history in crime fiction and the role of gender in European crime narrative.
