Mythmoot V is accepting proposals for papers, panels, workshops and creative presentations. 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 following areas:
Imaginative Literature—Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction from Mary Shelley and H.P Lovecraft to Ursula Le Guin and Neil Gaiman, exploring how these works depict or enact fantastic frontiers, their creation, and their transcendance.
Tolkien and Inklings Studies—Research on the works and lives of Tolkien, Lewis, Williams, Barfield, and their friends and contemporaries as they interact with each other, their modern context, and classic and imaginative literature, especially as they explore boundary-crossing.
Germanic Philology — Research on the relationships between language and literature in the past, present, and future.
Paper proposals should be 100-300 words.
Paper presentations should be less than 30 minutes long and include 5-10 minutes for questions and discussion.
