Noir Aesthetics in World Literatures
Organised by the Language and Violence Research Strand and the Department of European Languages and Cultures (DELC) of the University of Edinburgh, this one-day symposium will focus on the evolution of narrative techniques towards noir aesthetics in world literatures.
Featuring papers by selected researchers, and a conversation with invited author, Christopher Brookmyre, it will look at texts which favour the adoption of a new consciousness towards cultural politics, as they reinforce the connection between literature and public affairs.
