Our portfolio of research, knowledge exchange and educational activities includes the world’s first ever MLitt in Fantasy Literature, a vibrant cohort of doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers, and a substantial record of project funding. We have hosted major public engagement events (such as the AHRC- and VisitScotland-funded Fantasy Night at the Museum, 2017, and a successful Leverhulme bid to secure Brian Attebery as Visiting Professor in Fantasy, 2019), and have exciting plans for the future. These include a series of large-scale international colloquia, such as our annual conference, GIFCon, and a forthcoming international conference co-sponsored with the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts.
