CFP: Fairy Tales PCA

swedish-fairy-tale2011 National Conference
April 20 – April 23, 2011
San Antonio, TX
Deadline for proposals: December 15, 2010

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association invites submissions on any topic involving Fairy Tales for the 2011 Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Convention, to be held April 20 – April 23 in San Antonio.

The Fairy Tales Area covers original fairy tales, (i.e. Straparola, Perrault and Grimm, etc.), contemporary/ re-envisioned Fairy Tales (Datlow & Windling anthologies, The Fairy Tale series, etc.), and Jack Tales as well as films and TV series based on Fairy Tales or using Fairy Tales motifs. Thus, the interests are broad and inclusive; one topic always of interest is how Fairy tales work in contemporary culture.

Topics can include but are not limited to studies on the morphology of Fairy tales; presentations using Structuralist, Feminist, Marxist, Reader Response/ Reception Theory and Cultural Studies criticism; Fairy Tales as
Children’s Literature; the history and evolution of Fairy Tales; the cause and effects of the “Disneyfication” of Fairy Tales; the use and value of Fairy Tales. We are interested in as wide an array of papers as possible, so please do not hesitate to send a submission on any Fairy Tale related subject.

Please send a 250-word abstract, with title and contact information included, via email to either of the addresses listed below.

Please email submissions as a Word attachment.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch via email or phone if you have any questions.

We are looking forward to another great conference!
