Sharks Circling: Politics & Crime

‘There are no true friends in politics. We are all sharks circling, and waiting, for traces of blood to appear in the water.’ - Alan Clark Diaries

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. It 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 areas crime fiction covers: the police detective, historical, ‘hard- boiled’, clerical, classical fairy tales, domestic, the golden age gems, and the light-hearted. 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.

In the past, this conference has flourished through simple word of mouth, although it is featured on the events and reunions page of St. Hilda's College this year with links to the booking:
