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.

[UPDATE] Transnational Narratives of Performed Exile and Englishness

Catalina Florina Florescu, Pace University

The ongoing events in Europe concerning the "migrant crisis" have made me rethink of the scope of my collection, "Transnational Narratives of Performed Exile and Englishness." The edited volume already has a solid number of contributors, but given the very urgent nature of millions of refugees who seek hope and a new life in Europe, as an editor and a scholar I would be remiss if this volume did not invite scholars to reflect on the current situation in Europe. I seek 3 chapters that address this issue. The approach could be from a journalistic point of view and/or a personal, reflective essay. Please contact me at fflorescu@pace.edu or ravaseala@gmail.com
