CALL FOR PAPERS

Everything Old Is New Again:

Adapting the Classics in Contemporary Young Adult Novels

“An adaptation is not vampiric: it does not draw the life-blood from its source and leave it dying or dead, nor is it paler than the adapted work. It may, on the contrary, keep that prior work alive, giving it an afterlife it would never have had otherwise” (Linda Hutcheon, A Theory of Adaptation, 2006).

Our proposed topic is about cultural depictions of teen girls' sexuality and how films/TV series inflect it differently along lines of race, class, and sexual orientation. Also of concern are the reception of such representations/takeaway experiences that teen girls have with these media.

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations and panels on the diverse range of fairy tales throughout the world. This year, we particularly seek papers focused on pedagogical uses of fairy tales at all levels and in all fields, discussions of folkloric shifts from oral to literary to visual (filmic, artistic, etc) versions of tales, and creative pieces that retell or critique fairy tales or use the tales to comment on some aspect of culture or history.

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.

Deconstruction and the Child

Children’s literature: anthropomorphism: animality: posthumanism. (Timothy Clark and Jennifer Ford)
