What is fantasy?
Fantasy and its place in our culture is the topic at this year’s
Mythcon, an annual Tolkien and Inklings-based conference put together by
the Mythopoeic Society. This year’s Mythcon will take place August 8-11
at Wheaton College in Norton, MA.
The conference is seeking papers “that broadly consider the nature
and boundaries of fantasy and the relationship between fantasy and
different literary and artistic forms—how fantasy fits or resists our
attempts to classify and define it.”
Proposals (at a maximum of 250 words) should be sent to the Papers Coordinator, David D. Oberhelman, at firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 April 2014.
