dc.description.abstractThis project examines trends in power dynamics in contemporary retellings of children’s fairy tales in regard to gender and sexuality. It opens with a brief history of the fairy tale genre and the foundation of the Western fairy tale canon. I will primarily analyze The Walt Disney Company’s recent films, Brave, Frozen, The Princess and the Frog and Tangled as well as Emma Donoghue’s short fiction collection, Kissing the Witch and several tales from the feminist anthology Don’t Bet on the Prince, compiled by Jack Zipes. Though there will be intersections, and brief discussions, of race and social class, the focus will be shifting gender norms in fairy tale retellings.en_US
