The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations and panels on the diverse range of fairy tales throughout the world. This year, we particularly seek papers focused on pedagogical uses of fairy tales at all levels and in all fields, discussions of folkloric shifts from oral to literary to visual (filmic, artistic, etc) versions of tales, and creative pieces that retell or critique fairy tales or use the tales to comment on some aspect of culture or history.
Still, 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.

Deconstruction and the Child
Children’s literature: anthropomorphism: animality: posthumanism. (Timothy Clark and Jennifer Ford)
“The category of “childhood”—as well as the related notions of “children” and “child”— requires a rethinking …” (Spyros Spyrou, Childhood (2017)).
The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.
Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition: Page Number) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end. Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.
All contributors are sent a complimentary copy of the print version and the electronic version.
Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
