Special Issue on "Crime Writing"
The Human is now inviting submissions for a special issue to be published in June 2015. The special issue will be devoted to crime writing (fiction and non-fiction) in all of its diverse forms and multiplicity of cultural situations. The topic, for instance, may cover journalistic reportage, online fansites for aficionados of crime, detective fiction broadly construed, crime writing for children and young adults, hacking, true crime writing, historical crime writing, and other subjects. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged, as are treatments that deal with global (non-Western) writing or that bridge East and West. Less-covered subjects are most welcome. Successful submissions will demonstrate rigor, originality and persuasive argumentation for the significance of the thesis.
Completed essays of 4500-5500 words will be due no later than March 1, 2015, to guest editor, Rebecca Martin ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
