Fantasy, Science Fiction und literarische Weltschöpfungen

FanSciFi 2 Head

In the winter term of 2017/18, the lecture series "Fantasy, Science Fiction and ..." cooperates with the Deutsche Tolkien Gesellschaft e.V. to bring its 14th Tolkien Conference to Augsburg University. We focus on literary worldbuilding this term and expand the successful Ringvorlesung by more than 30 international lectures.

Picking up where we left off, the lecture series includes (among others) topics on works of G.R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, H.P. Lovecraft, Lewis Carroll and, of course, J.R.R. Tolkien. The series again aims at lecturers, students and the interested public.
