Fantastic Religions and Where to Find Them Deities, Myths and Rites in Science Fiction and Fantasy

The conference purports to be an occasion for an interdisciplinary discussion about the representation of religions in Fantasy and Science Fiction literary production and in any possible artistic manifestation connected to the two genres.

The themes the conference intends to tackle are the following:

  • Representation of “historical” religions. Why does an author represent them in a particular way? What is their relationship with the historical context the author belongs to?
  • Construction of “made-up” religions. What elements characterise religions invented by individual authors? According to what motivations does an author outline their features? Are their characterising elements taken from “historical” religions? According to what aims and modalities?
  • Representation of deities and other extra-human beings present in “historical” religions. How and why does an author portray a deity or another extra-human being according to a specific image? What is their relationship with the author’s historical and cultural context?
  • Representation of deities and other extra-human beings in “made-up” religions.  What are their features? How and why does an author build a deity or another extra-human being by determinating its peculiar traits? What is their relationship with the beliefs present in “historical” religions and the historical and cultural context the author belongs to?
  • Representation of myths and sacred tales present in “historical” religions. According to what modalities and motivations are they reported?
  • Representation of myths and sacred tales present in “made-up” religions. How does an individual author build a myth or a sacred tale of the world he or she created? What features qualify it as such? Are these taken from myths and sacred tales present in “historical” religions? What is their relationship with the author’s historical and cultural context?
  • Representation of rites present in “historical” religions. According to what modalities and motivations are they reported?
  • Representation of rites present in “made-up” religions. How does an individual author outline a rite of the religion they created? Is there a relationship with rites present in “historical” religions?
  • The impact of Fantasy and Science Fiction production in society in relation to religious beliefs. Did some of the works belonging to these genres concretely influence and condition contemporary religious life?
