Call for Papers: The Modern Day Fairy Tale in Film and Television (SAMLA Convention, NC)

Post date: 22 February 2012
Deadline: 14 May 2012

Fairy tales never seem to go out of style. This panel seeks papers that discuss the significance and implications of works that take traditional fairy tales and make them modern. They may take elements of fairy tales or the whole tales themselves and revise or rework them, but there is still some basis in traditional fairy tale. These tales may also be reworked in order to show a more modern sense of race, class, or gender as well or may swap characters or roles.

Examples of these works includes (but are not limited to) the following:
  • Once Upon a Time
  • Grimm
  • Hanna
  • Penelope
  • Red Riding Hood
  • Ella Enchanted
  • Pan’s Labyrinth
  • Stardust
  • Harry Potter

Please submit a 250 word abstract and a short CV (no longer than 200 words) to shane.trayers@maconstate.edu by May 14th, 2012.
