'Narratives of Crime' brings together fourteen experts in history and literary criticism to explore the interaction between fictional, journalistic and state narratives of crime in Latin America, from the late nineteenth century to the present. Emphasis will be placed on Latin American societies where the intersections between narrative and crime have been particularly striking and linked to the specific conditions of crime and justice in the area, and they have defined the social and political answers to the problem of impunity and insecurity. The countries selected are Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil and Cuba. More information to come.
