Calls for papers for two exciting conferences.
First, following the fabulous IGA 2018 in Manchester, the IGA 2019 conference, Gothic Terror, Gothic Horror is being held on 30 July to 2 August 2019, at Lewis University, Romeoville, Illinois, United States. Deadline: 31 January 2019.
We invite the submission of abstracts that explore the theme of Gothic Terror, Gothic Horror. We welcome proposed panels of three related papers. Since this IGA conference is the first to be held in the United States, we encourage proposals that consider the theme in relation to the American Gothic.
Then, at the University of Glasgow, there is the Glasgow International Fantasy Conversations conference Mapping the Mythosphere, 23-24 May 2019. Deadline: not given.
GIFCon 2019 is a two-day symposium that seeks to examine and honour the relationships between the different strands of Fantasy and the individual Fantastic works that make up the Mythosphere, be they books, films, games or comics. We welcome proposals for papers relating to this theme from researchers and practitioners working in the field of Fantasy and the Fantastic across all media, whether within the academy or beyond it. We are particularly interested in submissions from postgraduate and early career researchers.
