Tales Beyond Borders [23 - 25 April 2015]

full name / name of organization: 
Reading the Fantastic

Tales Beyond Borders is a two-day international conference (24th-25th April) and a postgraduate/early career researcher workshop (23rd April), all of which is being organized by the 'Reading the Fantastic' Graduate Research Group at the University of Leeds. Through these events, we aim to bring together those working in various aspects of fantasy studies in order to study and discuss this emerging field of research from a cross cultural and interdisciplinary perspective.

We welcome proposals from postgraduate students, established scholars, independent researchers, writers, and artists from any background. Papers can be on any subject or discipline in relation to fairy tales, folk tales, and fantasy literature but we encourage these topics to question or address ideas and crossings of boundaries between/within conceptions of the fantastic and the speculative. The deadline for the submission of abstracts (200-300 words) and biographies (100 words) is 31st January 2015.
