CFP for our next salon

We're holding another fairy tale salon on May 6. Our first salon took place last year and was a great success. This year's salon is held in tandem with the Rare Books' exhibition "In Fairy Land."

We're looking for academic papers and storytelling and performances, so if you'd be interested in participating, please let us know!


The Rare Books Collection at Monash University is currently holding an exhibition entitled In Fairy
Land: An Exhibition of Fairy Tale Books. In honour of this exhibition the literary group, Fairy Tale
Salon, at Monash University will be hosting an enchanted daytime event.

The day is open to readings, performances and discussions about all things fairy tale. This event is open to anyone who has an interest in fairy tales and will take place in the Sir Louis Matheson Library at Monash University Clayton on the 6th of May 2013.

We are looking for interested participants who would like to present original work and/or papers on the fairy tale genre. Areas of interest are:

Scholarly analysis of fairy tale (incl. literary studies, translation studies, film & TV, drama
studies, gender studies)
Live performance of fairy tale (incl. new & established fairy tales)
Fairy tale readings (incl. new & established fairy tales)

Please send a 100-200 word summary or abstract to by the 12th of April 2013.
