Phallogocentric discourse minimazes imagination, fabulation and fantasy as a matter for women and children, but Fantasy is powerful, liberating and therefore dangerous to those who fear change. The porpouse of this session is to rescue Fantasy and confront the legalistic yoke of Reason. Presentation in English and Spanish are welcome. Send submissions to Maria G. Calatayud, North Georgia College & State University, at mcalatayud@northgeorgia.edu.
