‘Happily Ever After: The Evolution of Fairy Tales Across Time and Cultures’

Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, 44 Webber Street, London SE1 8QW
Happily Ever After: The Evolution of Fairy Tales Across Time and Cultures
The same fairy tales often appear across different cultures. How and why does this happen?
Should fairy tales be updated – or even subverted – to appeal to modern audiences?
How have fairy tales evolved as they’ve been retold across the centuries?
This year’s IBBY UK/NCRCL Conference will explore these issues as they are reflected in international children’s literature, with a range of plenary speakers and parallel sessions.
Keynote Speaker: Professor Vanessa Joosen, University of Antwerp
Other speakers include: Jackie Morris, author and illustrator; Beverley Naidoo, author; Jamila Gavin, author; Hilary McKay, author.
