Founding Conference of the International Society for Fiction and Fictionality Studies (ISFFS)
Saturday, November 30th, 2019
The International Society for Fiction and Fictionality Studies (I.S.F.F.S.) is dedicated to developing connections between scholars of fiction worldwide. In a resolutely comparatist and interdisciplinary spirit, it aims to promote studies on fictionality and to encourage exchanges. It brings together specialists of literature, literary theory, cinema, video games, philosophy, psychology and neurosciences. The initial project arose from a collaboration between Françoise Lavocat (Université Sorbonne nouvelle, France), Alison James (University of Chicago, USA), and Akihiro Kubo (Kwansei Gakuin University, Japan). The goal is to extend this collaborative network to the largest possible number of cultural and linguistic spheres.
