Totally missed hearing about this one… The Fantastika and the Classical World (29th June – 1st July 2013, Liverpool UK)…

“scholars of Classical Reception are increasingly investigating all aspects of popular culture, and have begun looking at science fiction. However, scholars of the one are not often enough in contact with scholars of the other. This conference aims to bridge the divide, and provide a forum in which SF and Classical Reception scholars can meet and exchange ideas.”

But this one is still yet to happen… Translating Myth, a conference in Colchester, UK, from 5th-7th September 2013. On…

“all aspects of myth that involve the idea of translation … [i.e.] the process of conversion or transfer of cultural sources construed as mythic”
