Murder 101: Essays on the Teaching of Detective Fiction

This collection of essays examines how college professors teach the genre of detective fiction and, in doing so, provides insight into how the reader may apply such strategies to his or her own courses. Multi-disciplinary in scope, the essays cover teaching this type of work in the areas of literature, law, history, sociology, anthropology, architecture, gender studies, cultural studies, and literary theory. Also included are sample syllabi, writing assignments, questions for further discussion, reading lists, and further aids for course instruction.
