ICFA has reopened its CFP. Drydem, bneuensc, ancientwisdom, pythia-akrypta, anyone else thinking about going to ICFA, do you guys want to put together a panel? Bneuensc, do you want to co-present an anthropologically oriented paper on developing and using ethnographic methods in cyberspace (our “Ethnogging the G/local Locus” paper?)
The deadline is November 30th. Leave a comment if you’re interested, and I’ll organize the planning session, etc.
If you are interested in writing a paper for ICFA but can’t go, then let me know and we might be able to submit it and have somebody read it.
ICFA26: Blurring the Boundaries: Transrealism and Other Movements
March 16-20, 2005
Wyndham Fort Lauderdale Airport Hotel
This is a reopening of the Call for Papers for the 26th Annual
International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts.
The focus of ICFA-26 is on the movements that encourage and embody the
breaking and blurring of boundaries in all media. From film to fiction,
from comics to poetry, in works for both adults and children, the border
between the mundane world of reality and the fantastic world of the
imagination is a space undergoing exploration.
While ICFA does focus on a different theme each year, we always welcome
proposals for individual papers and for academic sessions on any aspect
of the fantastic in any media, from the Fantastic in Children’s and
Young Adult Literature to Popular Culture & the Visual Arts and the
Fantastic in Film, from Science Fiction and Horror to Fantastic
Literature in English and the International Fantastic. For more
information on these divisions and contact information for the
appropriate division head, please check our website at http://www.iafa.org.
The deadline for this reopened Call for Papers is November 30, 2004.
