The International Crime Fiction Association (ICFA – formerly the Captivating Criminality Network) is once again seeking contributions to our researcher blog, available at http://www.captivatingcriminalitynetwork.net/blog. If you are interested in disseminating your research, expanding your online research 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. Our last round of submissions included papers from a very wide range of research backgrounds, from Robin Hood to Mexican Crime Fiction and drug trafficking. We are keen to get as broad a set of posts this time, and so we invite submissions on almost any kind of topical background or historical era.
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) with a brief outline of your research interests, current projects or a specific idea for your blog post. Additionally, we will also add you to our list of contributors, should you wish to contribute regularly. 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.
