Conference on

‘Folk Belief’ and ‘The Supernatural in Literature and Film’

24 September-02 October 2019, Svaneti & Tbilisi, Georgia


This conference considers the themes of 1) folk belief, legends, and vernacular religion and 2) the supernatural in literature and film. Presentations are welcome on all aspects of of either folk belief or the supernatural in literature and film, though we encourage delegates to address the theme of the role of place in conceptions of the supernatural. Presentations last 15 minutes and will be followed by question time. Note that, due to the ‘remote’ location of the conference, audio-visual aids will not be available for presentations.


The first deadline for abstracts is 30 September 2018. (Later abstracts may be accepted if there is room available at the conference, but people who submit an abstract prior to the deadline will have the first opportunity to reserve a spot and to take advantage of the early registration rate.) You can submit your abstract here. The deadline for early registration is 30 November 2018.


To propose a presentation, please fill out this presentation proposal form, and e-mail it to info@islanddynamics.org. Write ‘Abstract for REMOTE’ in the subject line of the e-mail.


If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to convenor Sally Campbell Galman (sally@educ.umass.edu).
