BeschreibungNew German Crime Fiction

35th Annual Meeting of the German Studies Association September 22 -
September 25, 2011, in Louisville, Kentucky.

In recent years, scholars have begun reconsidering the style,
purpose, and even international impact of crime fiction. Long
considered a low-brow form of entertainment, crime fiction now
represents for many researchers a branch of writing that has matured
into both a culturally critical and literary genre. In addition to
increased scholarly attention to crime fiction in recent years,
educators in fields such as history, political science, sociology,
anthropology, popular culture studies, and even business and law,
have discovered its potential pedagogical applications. If, in
Arlene Teraoka’s words, trying to find a healthy representation of
German crime fiction has been a “mystery worthy of detective
work” (266), the recent increase in new German crime fiction
contradicts or at least modifies that trend. In fact, recent German
crime fiction—especially regional detective fiction—has experienced
what Syndikat, the online network for German-speaking mystery
novelists and supporters, repeatedly characterizes as a “boom.”

This panel seeks to investigate the scholarly and pedagogical
potential of regional or other examples in this boom of new German
detective fiction. Presentations can consider a range of approaches,
from the pedagogical uses of crime fiction for the German culture
classroom to reading crime fiction as a chronicle and/or critique of
contemporary German society.
