Programming Compendium
Periodically, Narrate Conferences, the 501(c)(3) charitable organization that presents Sirens, will publish the Sirens proceedings as a compendium. We invite presenters to submit their presentations for publication, whether those presentations are formal scholarly papers, question lists from roundtable discussions, reports from panels, or materials from workshops or afternoon classes. While not all presenters will participate in the Sirens compendium, each compendium will contain a sample of the programming offered at Sirens.

Currently, the first two Sirens compendia are available.

Sirens: Collected Papers 2009–2011 includes presentations from the first three years of Sirens. During these years, attendees examined warriors, faeries, and monsters, as well as broader topics related to woman and fantasy literature. You may review the table of contents here. To purchase a copy of the compendium, please visit Lulu.com, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon.

Sirens: Collected Papers on Women in Fantasy 2012–2015 includes presentations from the next four years of Sirens. During these years, attendees examined tales retold; hauntings and what it means, as a woman, to be haunted; rebels and revolutionaries; and our first reunion, when we celebrated both the Sirens community and reexamined the first four years of Sirens. You may review the table of contents here. To purchase a copy of the compendium, please visit Lulu.com, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon.

Papers from recent years of Sirens are currently being assembled into a compendium. To review other compendia that are currently available from Narrate Conferences, please visit Narrate’s compendia page.

Each year, accepted presenters will receive information about participating in the compendium shortly before Sirens, and presentations are due in mid-November of each year. If you have questions about participating in the compendium, please write to us at (programming at sirensconference.org).
