Description: A survey of detective works from Sherlock Holmes to film noir and contemporary crime procedurals. Investigations of crime and puzzles center our discussions of interpretive authority, problems of social scapegoating and racial suspicion, and the figure of the detective genius. Becoming detectives ourselves, we apply interpretive agency to social issues.
