2016 Conference Registration

Register For The Australian Fairy Tale Society’s 3rd Annual Conference in 2016

Theme:  Into the Bush: Its Beauty and Its Terror
When:  Sunday, 26 June 2016
Where:  We have chosen to hold our conference in Victoria this year! For our venue, we have chosen the Glen Eira Town Hall, Caulfield, VIC, 3162.
Description:  “Into the Woods”, is a phrase that has become closely linked to the fairy tale genre. It conjures up all manner of fairy tale images, such as roguish wolves waiting behind trees and lost children stumbling upon gingerbread houses. But how does it translate into the Australian fairy tale tradition? For our third annual conference, we will be exploring what happens when we venture… “Into the Bush”. Australian fairy tales reflect many of the realities of the bush, while also reimagining it as a space of magic and mystery. Whether it is depicted as real or otherworldly, the bush always encompasses duality – it is a place of both beauty and terror.
