The fantasy genre has exploded from the page, to the screen, art, and game-play. Participate in this series of discussions highlighting fantasy in these various areas, talking with experts from the field. After the discussions, participate in hands-on workshops, where you can engage with professionals on ways to explore each area in personal and creative ways.

This series of discussions will be be hosted by Dr. Alf Seegert, from the University of Utah department of English. Seegert's research focuses on "cybercultural ecologies," examining the interpenetrating relationships between nature, virtuality, and narratives as represented in literature, film, and new media. His current research focuses specifically on the role of the Fantastic in relation to virtuality and nature.
