We are absolutely delighted to announce the Baker Street Babes’ 221B Con schedule of appearances and podcast topic!
Sunday at 10:00 am is our live podcast! The topic at hand will be:
Ashley Polasek and Sherlockian Film Since 1900
Ashley Polasek is an “Aca-Sherlockian,” happily living at the crossroads of academia, traditional Sherlockiana, and contemporary fandom. She has spoken about Sherlock Holmes at academic conferences across the US, UK, and continental Europe, and she will graduate with her PhD on adaptations of Sherlock Holmes in July of 2014. She has been published in the Baker Street Journal, and was a speaker at the “Behind the Canonical Screen” conference in Los Angeles in 2012; she will co-edit (with Lyndsay Faye) the conference’s companion volume for the BSI Press. Ashley has been previously interviewed on CNN International and CBS Sunday Morning, and she can be found on Twitter @SherlockPhD.
The above is a picture of Ashley holding Thank You Carrot, a large gift to the Babes for their charity efforts following the first Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet Ball to benefit Wounded Warrior Project. We can’t wait for the interview and hope you’ll join us!
