Phallogocentric discourse minimizes imagination, confabulation and fantasy as a matter for women and children, but fantasy is powerful, liberating and, therefore, dangerous to those who fear change. The purpose of this session is to rescue fantasy and confront the legalistic yoke of reason. Presentations in English and in Spanish are welcome. Send submissions to mcalatayud@northgeorgia.edu
