The Louisiana Conference invites papers and creative work on the universal place of fairy tales in the world of communication and education. We are interested in how fairy tales are and have been used to bridge cultures and time, connecting diverse peoples by means of easily translatable concepts. Of particular interest are the struggles of truth and deception, reality and illusion, honesty and trickery; violence, fear, entrapment and salvation; character altering cryptozoological sightings; happiness deferred, denied, and occasionally delivered.
