Crime Narratives in Context (CNIC): A Cardiff Research Network
Launched in November 2006, the Crime Narratives in Context network is a multidisciplinary research network that brings together a range of scholars whose research interests relate to the production, transmission and interpretation of crime narratives.
Intended to operate as a collective enterprise, the network aims to stimulate research synergies, primarily across the Humanities and the Social Sciences, and to support existing individual and collaborative ventures. The network acts primarily in responsive mode, developing and adapting to the research profiles and interests of participants and providing an engaging forum for intellectual exchange, debate and communication.
The network coordinators have organised a series of activities that will help to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and, through knowledge sharing, identify new and original pathways of research that can be carried forward into future ventures. See our events page (including an archive of previous events) for further details. CNIC publishes workshop and research papers arising from activities.
CNIC is seeking to develop collaborative funding proposals to take forward emerging interests, and is planning a one-day Colloquium on 28 October 2009 in Cardiff on Capital Crime: Reading and Writing Crime and Cities.
