CFP: Fantasy and Fantastic Literature (grad) (2/27/09; (dis)junctions,

This call for papers is for a proposed panel at (dis)junctions, the
University of California, Riverside’s 16th Annual Humanities Graduate
Conference, which will be held on April 3-4, 2009. This year’s theme
is “Brave New Worlds.”
This panel seeks papers on any aspect of fantasy and fantastic
literature, from its modern inception with George MacDonald to its links
with ancient and medieval epics, and its continued and growing presence
in recent years with the Harry Potter books and in film and television,
as well as anything in between. Other possible topics include, but are
not limited to, issues of genre (e.g., the apparently permeable border
with science fiction, or mainstream fiction); fantasy and children’s
literature; fantasy and social critique or allegory; or analyses of
specific works or series of works. Of special interest, in keeping with
this year’s conference theme, are papers dealing with the creation of
fantastic worlds.

Please send abstracts of 200-250 words to Susana Brower at by February 27, 2009. Please let me know of any
potential A/V needs; every effort will be made to accommodate you.
