The Fantasy research hub includes experts on a wide range of fantasy and fantastic narratives, including Dr Rob Maslen, Dr Dimitra Fimi, Dr Rhys Williams, and Dr Matt Sangster. Professor Attebery’s visiting professorship, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, will strengthen the fantasy community and research culture at Glasgow.
