Call for papers for Issue 13 of the International Journal Syn-Thèses published by the School of French Language and Literature Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
“Once upon a time… and still going on”. The inclusion of the traditional tale in contemporary children’s literature: literary, educational, and translation issues
Over the past forty years, the folk and literary tale has been enjoying an extraordinary revival. Contemporary writers have been inspired by traditional tales and have explored their motifs in a variety of ways in their own fiction, including novels, short stories, plays, as well as new tales. A volume entitled L’épanchement du conte dans la littérature, edited by Christiane Connan-Pintado, Pascale Auraix-Jonchière and Gilles Béhotéguy (2018), brings together several interesting texts that question the relationship of the tale with different literary genres, which it hybridizes by being incorporated into them.
In the forthcoming issue of the journal Syn-Thèses, we propose to address this renewed and hybrid presence of the tale within children’s literature, aiming to highlight the literary, educational, and translation issues that this new tale-writing is confronted with.
