Papers, reports, work-in-progress, workshops and pre-formed panels are invited on issues related to any of the following themes:
* The “monster” through history
Papers will be accepted which deal solely with specific monsters. This project will run concurrently with our project on Strangers, Aliens and Foreigners – we welcome any papers considering the problems or addressing issues on Monsters and Strangers, Aliens and Foreigners for a cross-over panel.
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 26th March 2010. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 13th August 2010.
300 word abstracts should be submitted to the Organising Chairs; abstracts may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF formats, following this order:
a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract
Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). We acknowledge receipt and answer to all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.

The aim of the conference is to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting. All papers accepted for and presented at this conference are eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook. Selected papers may be invited to go forward for development into a themed ISBN hard copy volume. Some papers may also be invited for inclusion in the soon to be launched Journal of Monsters and the Monstrous.
