TimeEvent spans several days

A two-day conference to celebrate the life and work of the detective fiction novelist Agatha Christie (1890-1976).

The Agatha Christie Hidden Horizons is a two-day conference to celebrate the life and work of the detective fiction novelist Agatha Christie (1890-1976) at the University of Exeter and will encourage professional development for researchers within the humanities and beyond. It will also provide considerable benefits to research communities and resources within the humanities. The University of Exeter, which awarded Christie an honorary doctorate in 1961 and houses two relevant archives, is the natural environment for this event.

The two-day interdisciplinary event at the University of Exeter on 13-14 April 2015 aims to bring together scholars, students, and early career researchers with an academic interest in Agatha Christie, detective fiction, or popular culture. The conference is the second devoted to Christie that has been hosted by a British university. The first was  held in University of Exeter in 2014 and drew not only national but international scholars, students and early career researchers. We have renowned keynote speakers, international speakers, a conference dinner and performance of an Agatha Christie play.
