Mythcon 45: Call for Papers


What is fantasy?

Fantasy and its place in our culture is the topic at this year’s Mythcon, an annual Tolkien and Inklings-based conference put together by the Mythopoeic Society. This year’s Mythcon will take place August 8-11 at Wheaton College in Norton, MA.

The conference is seeking papers “that broadly consider the nature and boundaries of fantasy and the relationship between fantasy and different literary and artistic forms—how fantasy fits or resists our attempts to classify and define it.”

Proposals (at a maximum of 250 words) should be sent to the Papers Coordinator, David D. Oberhelman, at by 15 April 2014.
