"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.

"To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all." —Lord Byron

Writing about lives, writing that lives, or writing that comes to us live from an immediate, connected source shapes how we as scholars and teachers conceive of ourselves and others. Writing works within and out of academia to continually (re)define what is and is not important, what is and is not canonized, and what is and is not ignored within many discourse communities.

Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for cross-posting.

Please see below our general call for papers for our symposium: The Rest is History: Ireland, Performance and The Historical Imagination.

This symposium seeks to re-negotiate the archive of Irish theatre and performance in order to cast a light on those subterranean dramaturgies that are either characterised as the discontents of historical time or indeed, transmogrified into the historical imagination.
