Keynote speakers:Juliet McKenna (Fantasy author, creator of the Einarinn series), Juliette Harrisson (Senior Lecturer at Newman University, writer for Den of Geek)
2018 marks the two hundredth anniversary of the first publication of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, seen by many as the first science fiction novel. Subtitled The Modern Prometheus, the novel’s engagement with Greco-Roman antiquity is explicit. This conference commemorates that publication, and the full range of receptions of Greece and Rome in science fiction and fantasy. It is a sequel to a conference held in Liverpool in June-July 2013, and builds also on the work done by conferences on this topic in Rouen and Paris in 2012, and Puget Sound in 2015.
