The ICFA deadline has been pushed back to November 15th! Think of this 
as a Halloween gift to all you procrastinators.

The 32nd Annual International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts

Theme: The Fantastic Ridiculous

Division of Children's and Young Adult Literature and Art

Guest of Honor: Connie Willis
Guest of Honor: Terry Bisson
Guest Scholar: Andrea Hairston
Special Guest Emeritis: Brian Aldiss

The 2011 ICFA welcomes paper proposals on all areas of the fantastic 
(including high fantasy, allegory, science fiction, horror, folk tales 
and other traditional literatures, magical realism, the supernatural, 
and the gothic) in all media (novels, short stories, drama, television, 
comic books, film, and others).

Perhaps it is the playful aspect of the ridiculous that makes it so 
relevant to children's literature. From "Alice in Wonderland" to "A 
Series of Unfortunate Events," the ridiculous features in many major 
works of children's literature. Some of the most memorable characters in

children's literature are purely ridiculous, such as "The Cat in the 
Hat"and "Amelia Bedelia." Nonsense rhymes, humor, anthropomorphism, are 
all ridiculous and all are popular in the children's literature world. 
The CYA division welcomes papers about specific works of ridiculous 
children's literature as well as themes about the ridiculous in multiple

works.

The Children's and Young Adult Literature and Art division accepts 
critical scholarship papers that focus on literature aimed at younger 
readers. This includes picture books as well as middle-grade and young 
adult novels, short stories, and graphic novels that involve fantasy, 
horror, paranormal romance, science fiction, and any other aspect of the

fantastic. We embrace a wide variety of scholarly approaches and 
interests, including genre, historical, theoretical, and textual models.

We encourage work from institutionally-affiliated scholars, independent 
scholars, international scholars who work in languages other than 
English, and graduate students.

The conference will run March 16-20, 2011, in Orlando, Florida.

Please submit a proposal that includes a 250-word abstract and 
bibliography directly to the division head, Amie Rose Rotruck, at 
[log in to unmask] Abstracts should be turned in by NOVEMBER 15, 2010.

The conference encourages graduate student participation and gives an 
award for outstanding paper by a graduate student each year.

For more information on the conference or other divisions, please visit
