This conference invites scholars, creatives, writers, graduate students, and other enthusiasts of history and/or mystery writing to explore and discuss special topics in history and the role of history in writing mystery fiction and non-fiction.

Call for Papers

Countless historical enigmas remain unsolved to this day and inspire so much mystery writing - think of the Turin Shroud, the Stonehenge megaliths, the pyramids and pharaohs of Egypt, Atlantis, the Bermuda Triangle and others. Mystery writers hope to discover or unlock these long-buried historical secrets while researching their novels. With themes ranging from Egyptology, medieval alchemy, lost paintings, wars, scientific discoveries and any other significant moments from the distant past, many popular mysteries have taken the literary world by storm and ignited an interest in history.

There is an intimate relationship between history and mystery writing.

The London Centre for Arts-Based Research is now accepting proposals for papers and panels for its first "Mysteries and Histories" conference, to take place at The Court House Residency in Martock, Somerset, a marvelous location which in itself is rich with history and mysteries!

We welcome 15-minute presentations (academic and/or creative) that reflect this theme.

The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars, creatives, bookworms, writers, postgraduate students, and other professionals to explore and discuss the relationship between history and mystery writing.

- Research in history
