Sherlock Holmes Conference, June in London!

Below From http://www.h-net.org/

Sherlock Holmes, Past and Present

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.

This conference aims to unpick the historical intricacies of Holmesian fandom as well as offering a wide variety of perspectives upon its newest manifestations. This conference invites adaptors of and scholars on Holmes, late-Victorian writing, and popular culture internationally to contribute to this scholarly conversation. Our aims are to celebrate Conan Doyle’s achievement, to explore the reasons behind Holmes’ enduring popularity across different cultures and geographical spaces, and to investigate new directions in Holmes’ afterlife. This conference will precede Holmes’ 160th birthday in 2014 and launch a new volume of essays on Holmes co-edited by Dr. Jonathan Cranfield and Tom Ue, and form part of the larger celebrations in London and internationally.

Location:
Senate House, London

Dates:

The Newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London

The District Messenger, the newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, began as the Society’s “Grapevine Service” in 1982. The aim was to inform interested parties of forthcoming Holmesian plays and other events. The DM still does that – as well as covering films, radio and TV programmes, reviewing books, and much more! out

Still written and distributed by its founder, Roger Johnson, it is published to an irregular schedule, ten or eleven times a year, and is available to members and non-members alike. E-mail subscriptions are free: contact rojerjohnson@yahoo.co.uk.
