About Sirens 2011
Inspired by the daring adventures of women characters and compelled by brilliant works by women authors, Sirens is dedicated to women in fantasy literature. Our conference is part scholarly examination and part networking retreat, and we welcome academics, authors, professionals, educators, librarians, and readers to attend and participate. Within our focus on fantastic women, each year Sirens features a fantasy-related theme--and in 2011, our theme is "monsters," and we expect to examine and dissect monstrous characters and themes of monstrousness. Women have too often been decried as "monsters," and examples of monsters and questions of monstrousness pervade fantasy literature. All attendees are welcome to submit presentations on all topics related to women in fantasy literature. Sirens will take place October 6–9, 2011, at the Vail Cascade Resort and Spa in Vail, Colorado. For more information, please visit our website or send us an e-mail at help[at]sirensconference.org.
