Sam Saunders and Jon Wilkins
The International Crime Fiction Association (ICFA – formerly the Captivating Criminality Network) is seeking contributions to our researcher blog, available at http://www.captivatingcriminalitynetwork.net/blog. If you are interested in disseminating your research, expanding your online profile and contributing to your academic CV then please get in touch!
Our aim is to create a broad, diverse and well-connected community of crime-fiction researchers. Consequently, we invite submissions on a broad range of backgrounds and historical eras. We are also interested in contributions from all academic levels, particularly from postgraduate researchers and ECRs looking to expand their researcher profile and disseminate their ideas. Group-posts and project outlines are also welcome.
If you are interested in contributing to the blog, contact Sam Saunders (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jon Wilkins (email@example.com) with a brief outline of your research interests, current projects or an idea for your blog post. Additionally, we will also add you to our list of contributors. Posts should ideally be between 800-1200 words long, and should be fully referenced and cited where appropriate (if applicable). Posts can include images, however please ensure that any images are free from copyright and fully cited.
Book Reviews: The ICFA is also seeking assistance with book reviews, to be posted separately on the website. If you wish to get involved with these, please see the list of book reviews and contact Anna Kirsch (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief summary of your research interests and we’ll add you to a list of reviewers and contact you. Proposals for book reviews are also welcome.
