Studies in Fantasticism Ancient to Modern

The journal aims at promoting a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of
fantasticism across the ages. The individual issues of this series focus
either on important authors and/or works in this field (e.g. Hoffmann,
Poe, Tolkien, Dunsany) or on specific topics relevant to fantasticism
(e.g. the supernatural, the transcendental, the monstrous).

Call for papers
Fastitocalon volume I (issues no. 1 & 2)

Foundations of the Fantastic

The first volume of Fastitocalon is going to be dedicated to the
exploration of the historical, literary, cultural and poetical foundations
of the fantastic. Papers may not only focus on the historical development
per se and the precursors of modern fantastic literature, but also discuss
the theoretical prerequisites that made possible the emergence of the
fantastic as a distinct literary phenomenon.

Even though the language of publication is English, we would like to
encourage the contributors to include of works in other languages in their
discussion of the phenomenon.

Deadline for abstracts: 30 June 2008; for papers: 30 November 2008.
Abstracts, together with a brief biographical sketch, are to be sent to
either of the following address:
