Course Title: Rise of Crime as Entertainment
Course Number: C2228220
Course Description: This course explores the rise of crime as a form of entertainment during the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Starting with real life 'sensationalised' killings such as the Ratcliffe Highway Murders and Maria Marten and the Red Barn, we will discuss the role the press played in manipulating public opinion, and phenomena such as Murder Tourism and the Murder Souvenir trade. We will then explore the media that grew out of public obsession with crime- broadsides, patter songs, penny dreadfuls, melodrama and marionette theatre. The course concludes with discussion of the rise of the Golden Age of Crime Fiction in the early twentieth century, and the popularity of authors such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, thinking particularly about how world events may have changed the ways in which the public wanted to experience crime as entertainment.
