The SHSL are going to Oxford next weekend (Friday 2 to Sunday 4 September). I will be there and reporting back.

Cut and pasted from the SHSL website:

To celebrate the centenary of the famous paper that was a major contribution to starting the great Sherlock Holmes 'game', the Society's 2011 expedition will be to Oxford - believed by some to have been Holmes's own alma mater.

The paper was given by Ronald Knox and had two titles: The Mind and Art of Sherlock Holmes and – better known – Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmes. He presented it to members of the undergraduate Gryphon Club of Trinity College, Oxford, on 13th March 1911, although very recent research has shown that Knox read it to the Bodley Club at Merton College three days earlier.
