[UPDATE] CFP: Edited Collection on Dark Fairy Tales in Children's and Young Adult Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 2:52pm
Tanya Jones, M.Ed. and Joe Abbruscato, MA

Scholarly essays are sought for a collection on the "dark/gothic" fairy tale motif in children's and young adult literature. One of the most popular and long standing traditions in literature for youth, fairy tales have always had elements of fantastical horror, dark motifs, and other Gothic themes built into them. Cannibalism, murders, despair, rape, kidnapping, reincarnations, broken families and many other horrific elements are to be found in these stories. Countless experts insist that their inclusion was, and still is, vital to the growth and maturation of the child reader. The melding of the traditional fairy tale and Gothic literature themes help the reader not only to see the positive aspects of life, but the darker side as well.

Sir William Phips & the Philosophy of History

updated: 
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 2:44pm
Joe Conway/ ASECS (Cleveland 2013)

Sir William Phips (1650-1695) was many things: a shepherd, a treasure hunter, a knight, champion of the earliest American paper money experiments, an Indian fighter, the governor of Massachusetts who oversaw the Salem Witch Trials, a pirate who died disgraced and in exile from his native New England, and (not last) a Puritan saint. Though mostly illiterate himself, Phips was written about extensively in the 1690s by his contemporaries Cotton Mather and Daniel Defoe. Later, his memory lived on in one of Hawthorne's earliest historical sketches (1830).
