The Hidden Queer: Queer Approaches to Disney's Fairy Tale Films

updated:

Friday, October 28, 2022

This edited collection would focus on the application of queer theory and queer approaches to Disney films that are infamous for queerbaiting, queer coding, and queer pandering, as well as the parodies of Disney films that stem from this. 

Previous works such as Kay Turner and Pauline Greenhill’s The Transgressive Tales (2012) looks into the queer retellings of the Brothers Grimms' edited collection of tales. This collection seeks to go beyond the Brothers Grimm and showcase queer approaches to the Disney fairy tale. With the 'Don't Say Gay' Bill and the apathetic response, it is time to shed light on this academic area and the link between Disney fairy tale films and the queer community.

EXTENDED Panel for SAMLA 94: The Avant-Garde and Social Change

SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 2022

The term avant-garde usually applies to works of art, literature and music characterized by their radical experimentation and opposition to institutionalized culture. Leading unconventional and non-conformist lives, the avant-gardists antagonized the bourgeoise by attacking their social values, mediocrity and material interests. Instead, these iconoclastic artists engaged in acts of dissidence promoted in soirées, manifestos, journals and exhibits that interfered with public life. For instance, Marinetti paraded with the Suffragettes smashing windows through the streets of London, an act that echoes his fervor to destroy museums and academies, as described in the 1909 Futurist Manifesto.

(NeMLA 2023) Using Theory in Times of Crisis: The Frankfurt School in the 21st Century

“Critical theory,” Hortense Spillers has written, “witnesses its most impressive moments of efflorescence in times of crisis”. Yet classical critical theory’s analyses of consumer society, of totalitarianism, of the public sphere, and of culture, were predicated on a wholly different set of crises to those which ‘we’ are now experiencing. Under today’s drastically different conditions of cultural and material production, what tools can critical theory offer for grappling with ‘our current moment’?
