Event description:

Messengers from the Stars - Episode III Science Fiction and Fantasy International Conference Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon The first two editions of the Conference Messengers from the Stars (Episode I and II), organized in 2010 and 2012, gained a significant success. So, we announce a third conference dedicated to this subject. The several contributions of national and international participants (artists and academics), which were of high quality and interest, justify that we further develop this thematic line. This is a wide universe with international tradition and recognition in several areas of modernity. The national and international promotion of Science Fiction and Fantasy has gathered a widespread and varied audience, and fostered the open debate on theoretical and creative issues, which underlie this genre. The amount of works produced in the different formats available raise unique theoretical, aesthetical, ethical, ideological and social issues, thus assuring the richness of the next forum. The University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies (ULICES) invites you to take part in this initiative to be held at the Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon, from November 19-21, 2014. We welcome papers of about 20 minutes (maximum) and also joint proposals for thematic panels consisting of 3 participants. Topics may include but are not limited to the following: - Artificial Intelligence - Comic Books - Fantasy and Children’s Literature - Fantasy and Science Fiction on Screen (cinema, Web, video games, etc…) - Fantasy and the Gothic - Imagination and Fantasy - Journey - Place and Non-place - Science and Fiction - Utopias/Dystopias Abstracts: Abstracts (250 words maximum) should be sent to along with a short biographical note (100 words maximum) by September 5th 2014. Notification of acceptance will be sent by September 15th 2014. Working Languages: Portuguese and English Registration: Early bird registration: July 28th – September 26th 60 € Students: 30 € Late bird registration: September 28th – October 24th 80 € Students: 40 €
