St Hilda’s Crime Fiction Weekend - Sharks Circling: Politics & Crime

Speakers at this year’s conference include: Adam Brookes, Chris Brookmyre, Natasha Cooper, Lindsey Davis, Mick Herron, Judith Flanders, Brian McGilloway, Adrian McKinty, SG MacLean, SJ Parris, Manda Scott, Louise Welsh, and Andrew Taylor (Chair). We are delighted to announce that this year’s conference Guest of Honour is Sara Paretsky.

Launched in 1994, this conference offers the audience the unique experience of hearing their favourite authors exploring a theme and what could be more timely in 2018 that Politics and Crime?

The weekend has become a significant entry in the calendar of crime fiction conferences and is a wonderful way to spend a weekend with like-minded devotees of crime fiction. Speakers will examine the many sub-genres of crime fiction: the police detective, historical, ‘hard- boiled’, clerical, classical fairy tales, domestic, the golden age gems, espionage, and humorous. We offer challenging talks, excellent meals, on-site accommodation, Oxford itself, and amazing camaraderie.

Beginning on Friday evening with a dinner and drinks reception, the conference will feature a weekend of talks, discussions and author signings, finishing up with a traditional farewell lunch on Sunday.
