Fantastika Journal Volume 1 Issue 2

The third Fantastika conference - Global Fantastika - ​considered  a range of Global topics: productions of Fantastika globally; themes of  contact within and across nations and borders; fictional and real  empires; themes of globalization and global networks, mobilities, and  migrations; and (post)colonial texts and readings, including notions of  the ‘other.’ Some of the articles in this issue originate from the  conference, along with a range of articles and reviews which were  inspired by this Global theme.

Fantastika Journal Volume 1 Issue 1

 This first issue explores and evaluates current research into Fantastika. As well as cataloguing and challenging established critical  stances and recent developments, we investigate approaches which embrace the self - reflexivity latent in the study of speculative and  fantastical texts. The articles and editorials in this first issue consider critical taxonomies and developmental trends of the genres of  Fantastika.
