DETECt exhibition

An overview of the different traditions of European crime

DETECt exhibition will be organised by the Bibliothèque des Littératures Policière (BILIPO) on behalf of BIBLIOCITE, the network of Paris public libraries, and in collaboration with the UPO research team. The event will be held in Paris in March 2020.
The exhibition will offer an overview of the different traditions of European crime literature and its transmedia adaptations across the East/West, North/South boundaries before and after 1989, focusing on samples and case studies of the works examined by the researchers for the project. Particular attention will be devoted to the processes of circulation, appropriation and standardization of serialized themes between the European countries, and between America and Europe.
The exhibition will show how a shared European imagination has progressively emerged in the course of two centuries, and how its gradual development helped define the representation of European identities in popular culture.
