Fantastika Journal Volume 2 Issue 2

Volume 1. Issue 2. December 2017

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.

Volume 1. Issue 1. April 2017

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.
