Fantastika - Issue 6 - Working Draft cover.jpg

Volume 5. Issue 1. May 2021

The third general issue of Fantastika Journal.

Volume 4. Issue 1. July 2020

This special issue is based off the fifth Fantastika conference - After Fantastika - which investigated how definitions of time are negotiated within Fantastika literature, exploring not only the conception of its potential rigidity but also how its prospective malleability offers an avenue through which orthodox systems of thought may be reconfigured. By interrogating the principal attributes of this concept alongside its centrality to human thought, this issue considers how Fantastika may offer an alternate lens through which to examine the past, present, and future of time itself.

Volume 3. Issue 1. January 2019

The fourth Fantastika conference - Performing Fantastika - focused on performative bodies. This included performance in theatrical plays and films, as well as an examination of the body itself. How is the body performed and perceived in Fantastika texts? How do Fantastika texts and our interaction with Fantastika texts modulate our understanding of performative bodies?

Volume 2. Issue 1. July 2018

Global Fantastika Vol 1 Issue 2 Dec 2017 cover.jpg

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 globalisation 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.
