Once Upon a Time

Presiding Officer: 
Elena Polyudova, Defense Language Institute

This session focuses on modern TV shows, movies, and books based on fairy tales and myths. On the one hand, these productions utilize well-known magical plots. On the other hand, they create new cultural and psychological patterns according to modern interpretations. The session offers the opportunity to analyze the phenomenon of modern experimentation from different perspectives: narrative changes in the plots; correlation between famous plots and modern contexts; psychological interpretations of the characters; modern visions of old stories expressed in costumes and scenery; linguistic analyses of scripts and texts.
