The event committee welcomes proposals for pre-formed panels, paper sessions, roundtables, and workshops on the theme “Trans/Inter/Cross: The Fantastic Between Genres, Media, and Cultures.” These may include sessions in which authors and artists share their creative work or panel discussions on creative topics. We are not accepting individual paper proposals for the symposium.
