UNDERSTANDING CRIME FICTION
Why do we love murder mysteries? Do we enjoy solving a puzzle? Or, are we looking for a deeper understanding of our own mortality? This class will use short fiction and film to investigate society’s fascination with murder. Starting with Scheherazade’s mysteries and moving through history to our modern interest in true crime, this class will unpick the literary, historic, and cultural elements of the genre, with a hope of gaining a deeper appreciation of crime fiction.
NB The course starts at 1.30 on April 23 to welcome everyone to the secure LLD Online Classroom.
Details of how to join the class will be emailed to you by Wednesday 22 April.
