DETECting Europe in TV Crime Narratives

    Aktivitet: Deltagelse i faglig begivenhedOrganisering af eller deltagelse i workshop, kursus, seminar eller lignende


    DETECt is an international research project with researchers and stakeholders from more than 10 European countries. The aim of the workshop is to expand and solidify DETECt’s international network even further: Experiences from the FKK-funded What Makes Danish TV Drama Series Travel research project illustrate that expanded cooperation with similar international research projects, as well as individuals with relevant research profiles, is hugely beneficial for all parties involved.

    There are obvious links between the work DETECt aims to do and the small nation angle pursued in research projects such as Screen Agencies as Cultural Intermediaries. What is the relationship between the small nations producing crime fiction and the rest of Europe, and how is this relationship reflected on screen as well as in production forms and policies? At the same time, looking above and beyond the single nation seems essential in a context emphasizing Europe. How can popular European crime fiction be analysed on a geopolitical level?

    This workshop consists of brief talks about the different associated research projects. Each speaker will have maximum 15 minutes for project introduction and research aims leaving plenty of time to discuss preliminary methodologies, results and research theses. The idea is to discuss research projects on an informal level.

    Participants:Robert Saunders (Farmingdale State College, US), Caitriona Noonan (CardiffUniversity, UK), Pei Sze Chow (Aarhus University, DK), Anne Marit Waade (AarhusUniversity, DK), Laura Landorff (Aalborg University, DK), Jana Dejonghe (KULeuven, BE), Lone Mark Daubjerg (VisitAarhus, DK), Pia Majbritt Jensen (AarhusUniversity, DK), Lynge Stegger Gemzøe (Aalborg University, DK), Kim Toft Hansen (Aalborg University, DK).
