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.

"… Oh! I would not tell you what is behind the black veil for the world! Are not you wild to know?"
"Oh! Yes, quite; what can it be? But do not tell me — I would not be told upon any account. I know it must be a skeleton, I am sure it is Laurentina's skeleton. Oh! I am delighted with the book! I should like to spend my whole life in reading it..."
- Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

The seventh annual AEGIS (Association of English Graduate Instructors and Students) graduate conference invites paper proposals on interdisciplinary topics in revelation, revulsion, and revolution in literature, cinema, the writing process, popular culture and art, or in creative works of short fiction and poetry that explore this theme.
