Call for Proposals
Mythmoot V combines academic conference, literary creative meet-up, and fan convention into one event. It creates a space for serious scholarship in fields that are only beginning to be considered in the academic world (such as science fiction, fantasy, horror, gothic, folklore, children’s literature, etc.) in a way that both academics and enthusiasts will appreciate.
We are accepting proposals for Papers, Panels, Workshops, and Creative Presentations (storytelling, music, visual arts, etc.) in the areas of Imaginative Literature, Tolkien and Inklings Studies and Germanic Philology. Proposals will be accepted through 15 March 2018. Read full CFP for submission details by clicking the button below.
