Światy poza światem. Fantastyka wysokoartystyczna w literaturze i kulturze

Organizatorzy niniejszej konferencji chcieliby zachęcić do pochylenia się nad następującymi problemami: • Polskimi i zachodnimi typologiami gatunków fantastycznych (czyli zarówno fantasy, science fiction, jak i fantastyka grozy, w tym horror, i podobnie dalej); • Kanoniczności fantastyki i przewartościowania opozycji low i high fantasy; • Proliferacji gatunków i subgatunków fantastycznych; • Dominacji kategorii estetycznych w genologii fantastycznej (urban fantasy, dark fan-tasy, steampunk, post-apo, cyberpunk, dieselpunk etc.);  • Relacji tekstów reprezentujących nurty Nowej Fali SF i New Weird do korpusu klasycznej fantastyki; • Korzeni gatunkowych fantastyki (francuska marveilleux, anglosaski realizm fantastyczny czy niemiecki romantyzm); • Inkluzywności fantastyki grozy w kanonie fantastycznym; • Wzmożonej aktywności światotwórczej fantastów (tworzenie encyklopedii, kompendiów, podręczników, atlasów, grafik koncepcyjnych itp.); • Przekładalności konwencji fantastycznych na media pozaliterackie: filmy, gry wideo, komiksy, gry fabularne (w tym LARPy) i transmedia.
