The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association invites submissions on any topic involving fairy tales for the 2012 Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Conference, to be held April 11 - April 14 in Boston.
While our interests are broad and inclusive, we are particularly interested in 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, and pedagogical uses of and approaches to fairy tales. 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 send a 250-word abstract, with title and contact information included, via http://ncp.pcaaca.org/. The deadline for submission is December 15, 2011.
