Please join the FTTV research group for a Fairy Tale Salon on October 20th from 5:00 – 6:00 PM in 4101 JFSB.
Details from the FTTV blog:
The group started this idea because of a blog post about the end of [CW’s] second Beauty and the Beast series where a blogger wondered if this was “the beginning of the end of the Golden Age.” We decided that we had some ideas about that and we wanted to share and see what some other people around campus thought about that. The conversation will start with some of those issues, and, again, ask for people’s experiences, especially with fairy tale shows like Beauty & The Beast, Once Upon A Time, and Grimm, the recent dramas. But then we also want to historicize it because we have our database about fairy tales on television, so we want to see if there have been other “Golden Ages” of fairy tales on television and what happened when they came and went. We’ll talk about specific aspects of television as a story telling medium and ways that endings are particularly interesting when you combine fairy tales and television.
