This is my schedule of activities at Wiscon--hope to see some of you guys there!
Feminism So Far (Feminism, Sex, and Gender)
Friday, 11:45 p.m.-1:00 a.m. in Assembly
Let's review the history of Feminism during the 20th century, and talk about the movement's steps and mis-steps.
Catherynne M Valente, M: Schelly Renee Steelman, Merrie Haskell
Follow the Yellow Brick Road: The Female Quest in Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and The Nutcracker
(This is my academic paper presentation dealing with feminine underworld journeys and hero-cycles. Do come--it'll be more fun than you think.)
Sunday, 10:00-11:15 p.m. in Conference Room 2
Catherynne M Valente, Kathryn Ann Sullivan, Schelly Renee Steelman
Archetypes in Fantasy: The Evil Stepmother
Monday, 10:00-11:15 a.m. in Wisconsin
Fairy tales have long relied on the symbolic dichotomy of a good but absent or magical mother and a bad, present and mundane mother. Does this continue to be reflected in modern fairy tales and fantasy, or has the evil stepmother been vanquished, or even better, embraced and redirected?
Catherynne M Valente, M: Heidi Anne Heiner, Merrie Haskell
Monday, 11:30am-12:45pm in Capitol Room
I'll have copies of The Labyrinth and Oracles with me for sale and signing. Until Wisconsin!
