Nicole Kenley’s areas of interest are detective fiction, contemporary American fiction, gender studies, and the literature of globalization. She is currently at work on her book project, Detecting Globalization, which examines American detective fiction’s shift from a national literature to a global one post-1970. In addition, her scholarship appears in the journals Mississippi Quarterly, Clues, and the Canadian Review of Comparative Literature as well as the edited collections Crime Uncovered: Antihero (Intellect), Teaching Crime Fiction (Palgrave Macmillan), and the forthcoming Companion to Crime Fiction (Routledge) and Animals in Detective Fiction (Palgrave).
