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. These centre on an annual research seminar series, guest lectures and one-day colloquia. We are keen to develop further partnerships with other university ventures, as well as with the creative and cultural industries. See our events page (including an archive of previous events) for further details. CNIC also publishes workshop and research papers arising from activities.
