Call for papers

Three-hundred and nineteen years since the publication of Charles Perrault’s famous /Histories du Temps Passé/, the myth of Cinderella remains integral to many current facets of our cultures. Inspired by the University of Bedfordshire’s collection of scripts, books, theatrical memorabilia, designs, and ephemera on /Cinderella /and organised by the Research Institute for Media, Arts and Performance, this conference focuses on the role of performance and storytelling as a way to analyse moments of significant artistic, cultural and social change.
