I have booked to attend this on 21 and 22 June 2013 and I am calling all Sherlockians to join me!

Sherlock Holmes: Past and Present Conference, 21-22 June 2013, Institute of English Studies, Senate House, University of London

This conference brings together academics, enthusiasts, creative practitioners and popular writers in a shared discussion about the cultural legacy of Sherlock Holmes. 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.
