Lecture at Panora attracts a large audience

Claudia Fonseca Alfaro IUR Visiting Scholar Malmö, Nordic Noir

Robert Saunders, Visiting Scholar at the IUR, held the lecture Screening the Nordic City: The Politics of Place and Space in Contemporary Crime Series yesterday at Panora, attracting a diverse audience that had interesting questions for the New York-based professor during the Q&A session.

Annette Hill, Professor of Media and Communication at Lund University, also had the chance to pick Robert’s brain with thought-provoking questions about the geopolitics of Nordic noir series such as The Bridge and Bordertown.

The event was co-produced with Medea and was moderated by Professor Bo Reimer from Malmö University’s School of Arts and Communication (K3).
