Sarah Martin is a PhD student and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Chester. She will be discussing her current research into the Golden Age of detective fiction and the figure of the female detective, by taking a look at the methods of detection in the literature.

This lecture will outline the key themes in Golden Age detective fiction, reflecting on what we consider ‘the Golden Age of Detective fiction’ to be. The lecture will look at the work of Agatha Christie and bring her texts to life!

Come along to discover a new outlook on whodunnits, if you dare!


Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.
