Who knew catching up on email could take most of the day? One week out of action and the email reached terrifying proportions.
But I did learn of a new addition to the Fairy Tales Re-Imagined Symposium:
Dark Tales, Serial Archetypes
5pm, 11 March 2011
Quoting from the promotional material:
"You may not know it, but the fairytale is alive and well and living in your TV through characters such as Dexter Morgan.
Join Jeff Lindsay, author and creator of our favourite serial killer sociopath, in conversation with Professor Sue Turnbull as they explore the renaissance of macabre fairytales in popular culture and examine how fairytales have influenced Lindsay’s writing."
Tickets can be purchased separately for the talk, with details available on the website (linked above).
