Women in German-sponsored panel at GSA conference; Oct 4-7, 2012; Milwaukee, WI
The ‘feminist turn’ of the late 1980s and 1990s in the German-language Krimi genre has brought gender to the forefront of mystery and detective fiction. “(En)Gendering Crime” will focus on implicit and explicit intersections between gender and genre in literary and visual forms of the Krimi through the ages. We invite proposals on a range of topics including: representations of gender; the queering of the genre; female authors, subjects (detectives, victims, Watson figures), and readers/spectators of mysteries; and negotiations of subgenre (such as the Frauenkrimi, Regiokrimi, Häkelkrimi, noir, or thriller).
Please email proposals (250 words max, plus your contact info and brief bio in 2-3 sentences) by January 31, 2012, to both organizers: Sabine Gross ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) and Faye Stewart ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). Please note that presenters will need to be members of both WIG and GSA (Women in German and the German Studies Association).
