Theory in practice–
RESARCHING THE FANTASTIC


The 11th Seminar of the Finnish Fantastic Researchers, Jyväskylä & Finncon2010, Finland
Thursday 15th and Friday 16th July, 2010


The11thSeminar of the Finnish Fantastic Researcherswill take place in Jyväskylä, Finland, in
connection with the FINNCON 2010. We wish to invite papers with following themes in general: how
to implement the theory of fantastic in practice or how to apply the concepts of the theory in practice.

The basic premises of "the fantastic" themselves pose theoretical questions for researchers. How does "fantasy" relate to the problematic issue of "natural" vs. "supernatural"? How does that relate
to the questions of genre and to the way the forms of fantastic narratives question and redefine reality?

The research may be based on literature, movies, TV-series and any other cultural product in the wide field of science fiction and fantasy. Various kinds of papers are welcome: essays, academic seminar papers, parts of dissertations etc. The papers may be in either Finnish or English.

The aim of the seminar is to promote Finnish multidisciplinary research on science fiction and fantasy
and to enhance the internationalization of the Finnish research network. Teachers of the seminar are researcher Irma Hirsjärvi (University of Jyväskylä), prof. Frans Mäyrä (University of Tampere),
researcher Merja Polvinen (University of Helsinki), prof. Liisa Rantalaiho (University of Tampere),
researcher Matti Savolainen (University of Tampere), and researcher Markku Soikkeli (University of
Tampere).

The deadlinefor an abstract of 500 words is 16.5. 2010. It should be sent by e-mail, preferably in
Word- or RTF-format to the address csmaso@uta.fi You will receive a message about the acceptance of your paper and further info by 7.6. For the seminar we wish to receive a presentation of 4-8 pages of your research. Dissertation articles or post-graduate research papers should be in English if possible.

When the number of participants allows, papers will also be accepted outside the theme.

Organizers: FINFAR – Finnish Network of Fantasy Research and Finncon 2010 (www.finncon.org).
Coordinator: Markku Soikkeli (csmaso@uta.fi)
