If you wish to form your own Myth or Fairy Tale-focused panel, I would be glad to facilitate your needs (Panels focused on one particular tale are especially encouraged). Also, if your work does not focus on Myth or Fairy Tale but fits within the broad range of areas designated for the upcoming conference on American & Popular culture, I still encourage you to participate.
