Inhalt This course is now full. Please enrol for an alternative Proseminar course.


This Proseminar will address crime as a topic in literature, in part to understand the various representations of crime in fictional worlds, to reflect on our fascination with this genre and to explore the politics that are embedded at the core of crime fiction. We will consider 4 pieces of crime fiction:
The Big Sleep and Other Novels by Raymond Chandler Penguin edition ISBN13 9780141182612

A Rage in Harlem by Chester Himes Penguin edition ISBN13 9780141196442

“Not After Midnight” by Daphne du Maurier (a short story which is always in an anthology, never alone) in Don't Look Now And Other Stories Virago Press / Little, Brown Book Group ISBN13 9780349006604 (or other if you find available)

The Inugami Curse by Seishi Yokomizo Pushkin Vertigo wechseln. ISBN-13-Nummer: ‎ 978-1782275039


We will start with The Big Sleep, and then turn to A Rage in Harlem, but it would be best to read all the literature before the start of term.

The course will first follow a number of theoretical readings to derive tools, for which small student task groups will be responsible under my supervision. The second phase will involve close and careful reading of the course literature; this, too, will be discussed and presented by small student task groups somewhat more independently.
Lernziele Students will become familiar with current descriptions and discussions of literature and its impact on culture.
Students will further their critical approach to text and to authorship, including inter-relating various primary texts and secondary materials in meaningful ways.
Students will learn to consider formats and genres as not only form but as content.
Students will have the opportunity to write a Proseminar paper attached to the course.
Literatur A course pack of readings will be provided at the beginning of semester. Students are required to have their own copies of and read the three novels and short story.
