Molly Slavin, a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication, published an article titled “Abir Mukherjee’s Historical Crime Novels and the Contemporary Postcolonial.” The article appeared in Clues: A Journal of Detection, the oldest U.S. scholarly journal on mystery, detective, and crime fiction.


In the article, Slavin argues that Mukherjee uses his novels to explain imperialism, history, and postcolonialism to 21st-century readers through tropes from the Golden Age of Detective Fiction (1920–1939).
