Accepting the call! Academia, George R.R. Martin and the hero's journey

Saturday Aug 24   11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (1 hour)

For the last 40 years, Fantasy has been a secondary topic within the walls of Academia, mostly for the idea of It not being 'high literature'. Not even Tolkien, the Professor, and his works, entered easily the student's syllabus.

However, in the last 15 years, novelists ranging from J.K. Rowling to George R.R. Martin have created world-changing masterpieces who have broken the rule, giving new life to Fantasy studies. Today we will explore how their works and the hero's journey come into play in Academia and how they have changed Fantasy as we know It.
