CFP: Making a Murderer: True Crime in Contemporary American Popular Culture

We’re glad to share the call for papers for the issue on True Crime in Contemporary American Popular Culture of the Crime Fiction Studies journal.
The issue will capitalise on a recent swell of public interest in true crime narratives, offering informed analyses of the styles of violence, intimacy, sociality, and belief that constitute the abnormal normality of the world of true crime in the American cultural imagination. Specifically, this collection of essays will explore and evaluate the multiple, contested social and/or psychological significances of murderous crime in a range of discourses from the early twenty-first century, including – but not restricted to – film and television.

The deadline to send a 400 words abstract is January 31, 2021, whereas finished articles of 6500 words will be due in July 2021.
