After providing antiessentialist definitions of all three genres, the author undertakes close readings of Black's work in order to analyze depictions of race and gender as well as the role of intermediality and genre hybridity in detAction.​
Dr. Nils Bothmann is a film and media scholar. His research interests include genre theory, action movies, gender and crime fiction.
