Serial Eyes is on the Case

We are happy to announce that Serial Eyes is part of the “Detecting European Identity in Crime Fiction” (DETECt) Project, a pan-European research project that studies how crime fictions shape a transnational identity of Europe. This project involves universities, non-academic research institutions and industry partners from all over Europe, including University of Bologna, Catholic University Leuven, Paris-Ouest Nanterre University, Freie Universität Berlin as well as TV 2 and Miso Film in Denmark. DFFB Serial Eyes is represented as the only film school in the consortium.
Researchers will investigate current representations of European identities in crime fiction (TV series, novels and films). Serial Eyes will use the results of the research to design new teaching materials for training TV writers in writing crime fiction that break with old stereotypes and shape European identities through new, innovative forms of narration.
This project is the first humanities-based research project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020. The project spans from 2018 to 2021 with training activities to occur throughout the duration of the project.
