Abstract

DETECt investigates how popular culture contributes to shaping European cultural identity as a continuing process of transformation fostered by the mobility of people, products and representations across the continent. By analyzing the crime genre in fiction, film and TV dramas from 1989 to present, the project examines how strategies such as co-production, serialization, translation, adaptation, and distribution support the transnational dissemination of shared representations of European identity. DETECt emphasizes in particular how the representation of borders, transnational networks, gender and ethnic identities in these works reflects on the ability of European narratives to migrate beyond their place of origin and be appropriated elsewhere in different and variegated ways.
