This shared discussion about the cultural legacy of Sherlock Holmes brings together academics, enthusiasts, creative practitioners and popular writers to examine the historical intricacies of Holmesian fandom and offer a wide variety of perspectives upon its newest manifestations.

The national and international relations that Holmes, his creator, and their contemporary readers witness, and the permutations of these concepts in adaptations make Holmes as a case study particularly important and timely for our understanding of the historical and contemporary issues relating to Europe and the European Union. Preceding Holmes’ 160th birthday in 2014, the event celebrates Conan Doyle’s achievements, explores the reasons behind Holmes’ enduring popularity across different cultures, media, and geographical spaces, and investigates new directions in Holmes’ afterlife.

The conference will also showcase work from a new volume of essays on Holmes co-edited by Dr Cranfield and Ue.
