Moving Worlds Issue 13.1 'Crime across Cultures'

image supplied by Michelle Chiang

£32.00

Description

This issue of Moving Worlds seeks to examine how discourses of crime and criminality are produced in a global context that extends well beyond the cloisters of Orwell’s English middle class. We ask how writers and cultural practitioners from around the world have diversified the crime writing genre, moving beyond the detective novel in order to experiment with a variety of media including short fiction, television, performance, visual art and graffiti.

Please note the price of this product is £30.00 plus £2.00 postage.
