Professor GILL PLAIN University of St Andrews

SOPHIE HANNAH Author of The Monogram Murders

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.

Since her death in 1976, Christie's popularity has only increased, and her legacy has been interpreted in various, sometimes surprising new ways. In addition, new perspectives on the Queen of Crime's life and work have opened up. As her grandson, Mathew Prichard, said in 2014, 'Agatha Christie is so much more than an author.'

[UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED] Ecology, System, Empire (NAVSA 2015)

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2014 - 8:45am
full name / name of organization: 
Nathan K. Hensley and Philip Steer

The cataclysmic fact of global warming has brought to the fore notions of interconnection, supraindividual agency, and transhuman timescales, challenging scholarship to ask how systems, ecological networks, and even entire worlds might be conceived within a single frame. In Victorian Studies this presents itself as a problem of critical scale—what are the temporal and geographic boundaries of "the Victorian"?—and aesthetic form: how to represent an ecosystem, where no single phenomenon can be abstracted from a system of mutual dependence?
