There is hardly any subject in contemporary literary, cultural, and media studies that is discussed and researched with as much controversy as "the fantastic". Since theoretical debate on the subject was initiated in the second half of the 20th century, largely by Tzvetan Todorov and Roger Callois, research on the fantastic has become a globally relevant, interdisciplinary, and rapidly developing field of scholarship. The field's significance is reflected in numerous scholarly journals, associations, organizations, research projects and institutions which have focused on the fantastic.
