What Do Fairytales Mean? The Interpretation of Popular Narrative Tradition

Over the past two centuries, writers and scholars have advanced arguments for profound, hidden meanings in popular narrative traditions. This lecture explores some of these arguments, touching upon psychoanalytic, political and socio-historical explanations of the meaning of fairytales. Ultimately, however, this lecture proposes that fairytales mean what each generation wants them to mean, and this is why they have survived.

Speaker: Dr Andrew Teverson, Kingston University

Date and Time: Saturday 22 June 11.30am - 1pm
Venue: Room 0001, John Galsworthy building, Penrhyn Road campus
