All scholars working in the areas of myth and/or fairy tales are invited to submit paper or panel proposals for the upcoming SWPACA Conference. Panels are now forming on topics related to all aspects of myths and fairy tales and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales; one or the other is perfectly fine. Presentations considering both genres are of course welcome and can stimulate interesting discussions. Proposals for forming your own Myth or Fairy Tale-focused panel – especially panels focused on one particular myth/tale – are encouraged.
Paper topics might include (but are certainly not limited to):

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.
Please consider submitting a proposal for the following Call for Papers.

The art, history, literature, and philosophy of ancient Greece and Rome serve as the foundation of Western civilization. While the Classics have had a tremendous influence on subsequent cultures, the academy frequently keeps the discipline of Classics separate from modern literatures and languages. Yet the Classics have always been an integral part of cultural productions and the university itself; the word “academy” even has its origins in Plato. This roundtable will explore the current state of Classics scholarship, focusing on Classics as an area of study as well as its place in contemporary academia. Possible approaches include:
· Defining the Classics
· Current research trends in Classics scholarship
The ancient Greek word topos is commonly translated as “place” and referred to a region, site, or geographical position. While the ancient Greek language is long gone, the term topos has survived and passed into the modern vernacular. Today, the word topos is used in literary theory and refers to any common literary theme or motif. This passage of the term for “place” into literary analysis is the natural extension of how the Classics viewed space, as they defined their world through fictions and mythology. The flora and fauna found in the pastoral realm had their origins in various myths, while the city gave the temple a central location and tie its central civic and religious festival to theatre.
