Call for Papers (see both)

Fairy Tales (CFP #1)

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations on any topic involving fairy tales. While our interests are broad and inclusive, we invite papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (TV shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales, etc.  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.

Please submit your proposal of 250-300 words and a short, academic bio to http://ncp.pcaaca.org/. We cannot accept abstracts/bios by email.

When we review abstracts we look for cogent, tightly-focused ideas that provide enough detail for us to see where you are headed and abstracts that indicate a paper that can fit within the time constraints of the panel. Panels run 90 minutes with four presenters, so each paper should be written for a length of 15-20 minutes (about 2100-2400 words, or 7-8 double-spaced pages in 12 point Times New Roman).

Please send all inquires to:

-Robin Gray Nicks

-Linda J. Holland-Toll

Special Session on “Snow White” (CFP #2)

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations about “Snow White” (the early tales and other versions from film, tv, literature, and other media) in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the release of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937). We welcome any approach to the movie and its significance. Proposals should be roughly 250-300 words in length and submitted along with a short, academic bio to http://ncp.pcaaca.org/. We cannot accept abstracts/bios by email.

When we review abstracts we look for cogent, tightly-focused ideas that provide enough detail for us to see where you are headed and abstracts that indicate a paper that can fit within the time constraints of the panel.
