The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association (PCA) seeks paper presentations and panels for the annual conference, to be held online from June 2-5, 2021. We are looking for projects that think broadly and diversely about 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.

Haunted Nature: The Cultural Work of Haunting

Monday, September 28, 2020 - 9:46am

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 1, 2020

We are looking for 2 more articles for a collection of essays on "Haunted Nature", preferably from an indigenous perspective but other topics are welcome as well. The collection is a study of human entanglements with nature as seen through the mode of haunting. Together, the essays demonstrate how haunting and being haunted can elucidate our troubled relationships with our natural environments. Seen as an interruption of the present by the past, hauntings address contemporary anxieties concerning human involvement in the transformation of natural environments and their ecosystems, and our complicity in their collapse.
