The Detective Novel


What is a detective novel, and how does it "work"? By looking at synchronic and diachronic transformations of the genre—from British Sherlock Holmes to the South African “noir-fantastic"—the course investigates the structure of literary genres and their adaptability to different social, cultural, and civilizational contexts.
