This conference is concerned with re-visiting the politics of religious writing in the 'Long Reformation', a broad chronology of early modern literary and political culture and across an inclusive range of literary genres. Proposals are invited for 20 minute papers that consider puritan and nonconformist writing and its engagement with / impact on a wide range of political and cultural contexts. Recent work by historians and literary scholars has led to a resurgence of interest in the religious history of the period and how various forms of faith and belief engaged with culture and politics in a period sometimes described as the Post-Reformation.

Sherlock Holmes, Past and Present, 21 and 22 June 2013

updated: 
Monday, November 26, 2012 - 8:09pm
Senate House, London

This conference offers a serious opportunity to bring together academics, enthusiasts, creative practitioners and popular writers in a shared discussion about the cultural legacy of Sherlock Holmes. The Strand Magazine and the Sherlock Holmes stories contribute one of the most enduring paradigms for the production and consumption of popular culture in the twentieth- and the twenty-first centuries. The stories precipitated a burgeoning fan culture including various kinds of participation, wiki and crowd-sourcing, fan-fiction, virtual realities and role-play gaming. All of these had existed before but they were solidified, magnified and united by Sherlockians and Holmesians in entirely new ways and on scales never seen before.
