Let me tell you, I am super excited about June this year! 

Not only are we running our third annual symposium,  Transporting Tales, but our partners at the Australian Fairy Tale Society are also running their first conference, The Fairy Tale in Australia.

To top it off, I am honoured to be on a fairy tale panel with Dr. Rebecca-Anne Do Rozario and Victoria Tedeschi at the eleventh biennial international conference for ACLAR (Australian Children’s Literature Association for Research), Emotional Control: Affect, Ideology and Texts for Young People. All details can be found on our ‘Upcoming Events’ page.

Here are some updates for you:

The Call for Participation for our symposium, Transporting Tales, will be closing soon. If you do wish to submit a proposal, please do so by May 10 to arts-fairytale@monash.edu

The Call for Participation for the Australian Fairy Tale Society conference, The Fairy Tale in Australia, has now closed, but tickets for attendees are now available online. They have also started fundraising for their future website. Do take a look at their project on Pozible as it’s a great cause!

The Call for Participation for the ACLAR conference, Emotional Control: Affect, Ideology and Texts for Young People, has also closed. Tickets are available on their website.

So, it looks like June is going to be big! I am officially dubbing it the Month of the Fairy Tale. I can’t wait to immerse myself in the world of fairy tales…

 

Enchanted regards, 
Belinda Calderone

    • Hi Tory!

      You are most welcome 🙂 I’m so happy to be on the panel with you.

      I’ll be giving a paper called “Grimm Feelings: Affect and Didacticism in the Nineteenth-Century Fairy Tales of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm”

      I’m looking forward to your paper on Anderson.

      Can’t wait to see you there and catch up!
