Fall III. International Literature and Culture Conference, “Eurasian Folk and Fairy Tales: Bridging Continents” , 06-08 May 2020
Emerging from oral literature, folk and fairy tales are embedded and entangled within the very confines of human consciousness and are continuously rewoven into the fabric of cultural memory. Often categorised as stories for children, these tales not only provide vital information into the psyche and disposition of the human mind, but also enable us to understand social and cultural interactions. The vast imagery, motifs, and archetypes these tales produce enable them to be constantly re-conceived, reinterpreted, and disseminated. Even though folk and fairy tales emerge from differing cultures with diverse traditions and customs, they seem to share similar formation mechanisms. With this in mind, this interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines to explore the function, transmission, and adaptations of Eurasian folk and fairy tales.
