You may have thought that our project members have been laying it low, since our web page and Facebook have not been updated so often – but think again! Our project funding for one year from The Finnish Cultural Foundation has almost ran its course, and therefore we have been actively applying for more funding for both The World Hobbit Project, and following The Game of Thrones Project. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Also, our members have been busy with conference presentation preparation, as some of our team members have traveled to the sunny Florida in order to attend the wonderful International Conference for the Fantastic in the Arts (ICFA38). If you happen to be in Florida, go and meet our team members! You can download the conference programme here. You can also expect a full blog post on the conference shortly.
Later in the spring, our team will be presenting our results also at Kirjallisuudentutkijain Seuran vuosiseminaari & Kulttuurintutkimuksen päivät (Finnish conference for research on literature and culture).
In addition, we are currently preparing publications on our project’s results – stay tuned for more information!
