Associate professor of English Jill Rudy, along with two former students, Jessie Riddle and Emma Nelson, published Routledge Companion to Media and Fairy-Tale Cultures winter semester 2018. A huge project, they are pleased with the book, which is made available for another month by the Routledge Press here. BYU also has an electronic copy at the HBLL.

“From Cinderella to comic con to colonialism and more, this companion provides readers with a comprehensive and current guide to the fantastic, uncanny, and wonderful worlds of the fairy tale across media and cultures. It offers a clear, detailed, and expansive overview of contemporary themes and issues throughout the intersections of the fields of fairy-tale studies, media studies, and cultural studies, addressing, among others, issues of reception, audience cultures, ideology, remediation, and adaptation. Examples and case studies are drawn from a wide range of pertinent disciplines and settings, providing thorough, accessible treatment of central topics and specific media from around the globe.”
