Sherlock Holmes, Past and Present, 21 and 22 June 2013 [Update]

updated: 
Friday, January 4, 2013 - 7:15am
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.

In the six decades since, readers have consistently ranked it high in myriad polls, while critics have rendered it the premier African American novel.
