abstract
Alison Hoddinott writes about the history of crime fiction set in Oxford from the early decades of the 20th century to the present. Her emphasis is on novels written by women and the ways in which their fiction deals with both the mystery and its solution and with the situation of women within the university and in the wider community. Thus, women's crime novels reflect the struggle of women for academic acceptance, the difficulties of combining a career with marriage and motherhood, the changes due to the contraceptive pill, the rise of the lesbian novel and, finally, the widening of settings and issues to include world-wide philosophical and political problems.
