"Discovering the Fantastic": A creative writing component of "Curious, if True: The Fantastic in Literature" Graduate Student Conference 2011
University of Victoria
Victoria, British Columbia
March 10-12, 2011
The historical, theoretical, and cultural contexts of the fantastic in literature are the focus of this year's graduate student conference at the University of Victoria. The fantastic crosses many formal and generic barriers in literature, and challenges the historical concept of the novel as a realist production. The conference invites graduate students who are writers of the fantastic to contribute their creative work as a complement to the academic presentations and research papers also offered.
