Crime and Crisis in Transatlantic Literature and Visual Culture

Organizer: Nick Phillips
Co-Organizer: Diana Aramburu

The global economic crisis of the past decade has reverberated throughout Spain and the Americas as the worst recession in eighty years spread from the U.S. across the globe. Nearly ten years later, some governments and media outlets are declaring an end to the crisis even though some communities continue to suffer the effects of 2008 and many of the criminal aspects remain unresolved. We seek papers that examine the impact of crisis on the depiction of crime in recent examples of Transatlantic literature and visual culture. What role does detective fiction play in depicting crisis? Why is the depiction of crime so popular in fiction and visual culture in these areas? How can crime fiction help in tracing a new path forward after nearly a decade of recession, recortes and reactionary politics? Can literary and visual cultures help us reexamine the definitions of crime and criminalization? How do new formulations of crime fiction, such as Colombia’s sicaresca, the nota roja, the narco novela and more recently, Spain’s gris asfalto subgenre allow us to better understand contemporary iterations of crisis? While the 2008 crisis will serve as our focus, we welcome papers that examine iterations of crisis from Spain and the Americas over the last 40 years. We also welcome papers that engage with a range of media (literature, graphic novels, comics, film, television, social media, etc.) as well as political activism that occurred in the wake of crisis. Examples can include, but are not limited to, depictions of violence stemming from cartel activity in Mexico, 15-M protests in Spain, okupa movements, ecological impacts, Ni una menos and other protests against femicide, novela negra depictions of crisis, and so on. Please submit paper proposals through the ACLA portal from Sept 1 to Sept 21. Feel free to email us if you have any questions.
