As the twentieth century witnessed the rise of film and visual media, the twenty-first century is currently witnessing the rise of video games and other such interactive media as a narrative and art form that overlaps in its scope and ambitions with the literary realm. In many language and literature departments across the globe, film is now firmly ensconced in the curriculum; video games and interactive media have already been granted their own departments at numerous larger institutions and will increasingly fall under the purview of language and literature departments at smaller schools.

Hidden between the lines in fairy tales exists the history of fantasy about women and sexuality. Because of its world-wide popularity and rags-to-riches feel, the “Cinderella” fairy tale best demonstrates this literary historicity. Jack Zipes, Cristina Bacchilega, and others have argued for the significance of examining fairy tales and their adaptations to see what the driving force of each narrative is and what this might represent. In this collection, we will examine 21st-century “Cinderella” adaptations that explore gender, sexuality, and fantasy in new and exciting ways.
