ICFA 34 will explore the ubiquity of adaptation in all its Fantastic forms. Conference papers might consider specific adaptations, adaptation theory, translation, elision and interpolation, postmodern pastiche, transformation and metafictionality, plagiarism and homage, audience and adaptation, franchise fiction, or the recent resurgence of reboots, retcons, remakes, and reimaginings.

We welcome paper proposals on all aspects of the fantastic, and especially encourage papers on the work of our special guests and attending authors. Please see our website at www.iafa.org for information about how to propose panel sessions or participate in creative programming at the conference.
Paper proposals must consist of a 500-word proposal accompanied by an appropriate bibliography, and a 300-word abstract. Please send them to the appropriate Division Head below. The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2012. Participants will be notified by November 15, 2012, if they are accepted to the conference.
