'Here be Dragons': the Oxford Fantasy Literature summer school will be held in September 2018, and is open to everyone.

Speakers from the Oxford English Faculty and other UK universities will look at different aspects of the genre, through 14 talks delivered over three days. Along with talks focussing on the works of individual authors such as G. R. R. Martin, Ursula Le Guin and Diana Wynne Jones, and overviews of the history of fantasy, there will be a number of short lectures on wider themes such as fantastic beasts, writing processes, and Arthurian fantasy.
