Speaker information

Dr Benjamin Poore, Keynote, York

Heralded by The Telegraph as a ‘global phenomenon,’ the BBC Sherlock is now one of the most commercially and critically successful series of all time. This one-day symposium focuses on the series to look back at its roots in Conan Doyle’s stories, to situate it in light of contemporaneous adaptations and pastiches, and to examine its treatment of a range of issues including race, gender, terrorism, and international relations. The fruits of this symposium will lead to the publication of a special journal issue dedicated to the series.

In this symposium, we will screen His Last Vow, attend presentations, and discuss Sherlock Holmes, the BBC Sherlock, and aspects of neo-Victorian detective writing.
