|Winter Term 2015 British Crime Fiction - 1489 - UNIC 203
Prerequisites/Notes: Must be attending the Lawrence London Centre. Sophomore standing
Catalog Description : The course will offer a survey of the development of crime fiction in Britain from the mid-nineteenth century to the pre sent. Taught as a lecture/discussion class, it will also attempt to exploit the London setting to provide a physical context for some of the work under scrutiny. Students will be able to develop their analytical and writing skills, and should expect to achieve a good grasp of the characteristics of genre fiction; they should also be able to recognise the contribution that a study of these popular forms can make to developing a broader understanding of the values and concerns of the society within which they arise.
