’This is not my hat’, les attributs d'une figure mythique ou Sherlock, du canon à la série BBC

Abstract : Much has been written about television as a writer’s medium, largely in contrast to film, where directors supposedly rule the roost. This assumption is all the more ironic given that long-running television series have only recently come to rely on adapting the literary texts that have long been a mainstay in inspiring theatrical-length films. However much this difference between cinema and television may have been exaggerated, the relationship between text and television is a fruitful and complex one that merits consideration. In the 2015 edition of GUEST’s annual conference on television series, we will be examining the relationship between “Literature and TV series”. Whether it be literary adaptations, the mainstay of PBS and the BBC now being used as the premise for long-running series, or the increased emphasis on television as literature, with the novelistic tendencies of series like The Wire and the renewed interest in television anthologies in series like American Horror Story or True Detective, this conference seeks to elucidate how literature and television inform one another in this new golden age of television.
