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.

20th Annual German Graduate Studies Conference at the University of Virginia: Virtues and Vices February 22-23, 2013

Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, University of Virginia

"Was man besonders gerne tut / Ist selten ganz besonders gut."
("Whatever you may like to do / Is seldom very good for you.")

This humorous observation from Wilhelm Busch has its roots in the vexing and intricate moral categories of virtues and vices. Does virtuous mean anything other than abstaining from vice? What affects the way in which we make ethical and moral decisions Which authority decides who is a sinner and who is a saint? Interpretations of virtues and vices fluctuate over time, and what is appropriate today is unbecoming tomorrow: be it the Crusades, witch hunts, and political martyrdom or Madame Bovary and "Sympathy for the Devil."
