CfP: Norse myth in Fantasy fiction/La mythologie nordique dans la Fantasy

Since Romanticism, Norse Mythology has been a popular source for fiction and has especially found its way in Fantasy works. Many Fantasy stories definitely involve Vikings – or Viking-like warriors –, elves, dwarves, giants, seeresses. If some are heavily based on the myths as we know them from medieval sources, others freely reinterpret and rearrange them to completely different stories that only retain Norse names.

 For its 6th issue, Fantasy Art and Studies invites you to explore the use of Norse mythology in Fantasy fiction, whether in literature, movies, TV, comics, or video games.

Papers (6 pages max., i.e. about 30 000 signs) in English or French are to be sent in .doc format, Times New Roman 12 points, single-line spacing, by January 5th 2019 at fantasyandartstudies(at)
