Since its first volume hit UK stores in 1997, Harry Potter has become a best-selling phenomenon that has forced readers and critics to reconsider how and what we read, and revolutionized the publishing industry from the bottom up.  With countless accolades and roughly 500 million English copies in print, eight feature films, with another on its way, and merchandise that continues to sell too well to be pulled from shelves, Harry Potter remains a fixed cultural icon 20 years on.

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations on any topic involving fairy tales. While our interests are broad and inclusive, we invite papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (TV shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales, etc.  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. We are very open to new ideas and like cross-disciplinary presentations.

"The Child in Medieval Romance I-III" (Kalamazoo 2017)

updated: 
Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 9:41am
52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 11-14, 2017, Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
deadline for submissions:

The medieval romance society is hosting for three sessions seeking to open up the complexities of romances’ engagement with children’s issues. How do romances problematize the relationships between children and adult society? Can children act to challenge the social order? In what sense can or should romances be understood as ‘children’s literature’? Is it possible to construct a child’s perspective? The sessions particularly invite approaches and methodologies drawn from non-traditional disciplines such as psychology, anthropology and emotions history. They aim to reconceptualise the ways in which children ‘read’ romance and forge new understandings of children’s engagement with medieval literary culture.
