Event description

Description

This masterclass is aimed to support students following research degrees in the field of ‘fantastic’, broadly conceived as gothic, SF, fantasy, and horror. Expect the masterclass to explore different approaches to “fantastic” literature so as to better reconfigure relationships between texts and genres, and the manner in which we theorise the fantastic in academic terms. Alongside this, expect the masterclass to focus on identifying ways in which to ensure the relevance of research outside of an academic context.

The proposed format will involve a one-hour chaired panel discussion, followed by a Q&A with our three guest speakers – Brian Baker (University of Lancaster), Robert Maslan (University of Glasgow), and Bernice Murphy (Trinity College Dublin). Afterwards, students and speakers will reconvene for a discussion and response session. Refreshments will be provided.
