Crime Fiction Program

This program, ENGL3012, introduces the literary genre of crime fiction, as well as a number of sub-genres and contexts.
In this program, you will gain detailed knowledge of one of the most popular and widely read literary genres: crime fiction. You will become familiar with the evolution of the genre from the early nineteenth century to the present day and will develop advanced skills in analysing and contextualising crime fiction texts from the UK, the US, Australia and beyond.
The course as a whole challenges the traditional view of crime fiction as formulaic “genre fiction”, seeing instead the genre as a form of literature defined by its diligent investigation of some of the key issues of modern society: justice, inequality, urban life, gender, sexuality, race and many others.
