About the Symposium:
The Dr. Henry Armitage Memorial Symposium aims to foster exploration of Lovecraft’s elaborate cosmic mythology, and how this mythology was influenced by, and has come to influence, numerous other authors and artists before and since. However, all submissions that contribute to a greater understanding of Lovecraft and associated authors and artists of weird fiction (and science fiction, fantasy, horror, etc.) are welcome. Additionally, we strongly encourage any nuanced critical analysis of his life and work that leads to a clearer understanding of who he was as a person as well as a writer.
The Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council (the organizer of NecronomiCon Providence) organizes this symposium of new academic work to explore all aspects of the writings and life of famed weird fiction writer, H.P. Lovecraft, including the influence of history, architecture, science, and popular culture on his works, as well as the impact he has had on culture.
Selected talks will be presented together as part of the Armitage Symposium, a mini-conference within the overall convention framework of NecronomiCon Providence, August 20-23, 2015. For more information on the symposium, or the convention in general, please email: [email protected]
NB: In addition to these talks, NecronomiCon Providence will also feature numerous traditional panels and presentations given by many of the top names in the Lovecraftian community.
