The Modern Day Fairy Tale in Film and Television
(Popular Culture Panel)
SAMLA November 9-11, 2012
Durham, North Carolina

Fairy tales never seem to go out of style. This panel seeks papers that discuss the significance and implications of works that take traditional fairy tales and make them modern. They may take elements of fairy tales or the whole tales themselves and revise or rework them, but there is still some basis in traditional fairy tale. These tales may also be reworked in order to show a more modern sense of race, class, or gender as well or may swap characters or roles.

Examples of these works includes (but are not limited to) the following:
Once Upon a Time
Grimm
Hanna
Penelope
Red Riding Hood
Ella Enchanted
Pan’s Labyrinth
Stardust
Harry Potter

Please submit a 250 word abstract and a short bio (no longer than 200 words) to shane.trayers@maconstate.edu by May 14th, 2012.
