Agatha Christie: Crime, Culture, Celebrity
A one-day symposium at the University of Exeter, Monday 14 April 2014
Author of over eighty mystery novels, Agatha Christie was the best-selling writer of the twentieth century. Her detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple are iconic and her play The Mousetrap is the longest-running in history.
This one-day conference is the first in Britain to engage with Christie’s life, work, and popularity. An interdisciplinary event, Agatha Christie: Crime, Celebrity, Culture seeks to unite researchers across the humanities with an interest in this writer’s work, life, and her afterlife in TV, film, and, popular culture. The event is presented in collaboration with the Crime Studies Network.
Conference registration is now open and can be accessed here.
