[cfp] Drawn by the Fantastic: Art in Fantasy and Science Fiction (Conference)

Posted 24 Jul, 2005

27th Annual International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts
March 15-19, 2006
Wyndham Ft. Lauderdale Airport Hotel
Dania, Florida

Guest of Honor: Charles Vess
Guest Scholar: M. Thomas Inge
Special Guest Writer: Kathleen Ann Goonan

Deadline for Submissions: November 30, 2005

The International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, held each March in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is a gathering of scholars, editors, writers, artists, and poets interested in discussion of fantasy, science fiction, and horror in literature, film and television, and other forms of popular culture. The conference is sponsored by the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts, an academic association with members from many different countries.

The focus of ICFA-27 is on the fantastic in media other than the written word or film, including comics and graphic novels, web design and photo manipulation, cover art and illustration, picture books and pulps, film posters and CD covers, trading cards and tarot cards, cityscapes and landscapes, maps and tattoos and costuming, not to mention the stuff you hang on walls.

Examine the role of art and artists as subjects of the fantastic, or the influence of the fantastic, written or filmed, on the world of art. Explore the construction of race and gender in images of vampires, elves, and aliens.

In addition, we look forward to papers on the work of Guest of Honor Charles Vess, Guest Scholar M. Thomas Inge, and Special Guest Writer Kathleen Ann Goonan.
