31st International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts

"Race and the Fantastic- The 31st International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts" will be March 17-21, 2010 at the Orlando Airport Marriott, Orlando, Florida, produced by The The International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts. The IAFA is a scholarly organization devoted to the study of the fantastic (broadly defined) as it appears in literature, film, and the other arts. The purpose of the organization is to promote and recognize achievement in the study of the fantastic, mainly through the organization and management of an annual academic conference, the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts (ICFA). There are two publications connected to the IAFA: the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts, which is a peer-reviewed journal for scholarship within the field of the fantastic, and the newsletter, which publishes information relevant to the IAFA membership.
