Women and Material Objects in the Fairy Tale World: Feminist Work in New Materialism

As we teach and research fairy tales, we often focus on turbulent if not catastrophic relationships between women and material objects in the Brother’s Grimm’s Kinder– und Hausmärchen. Fingers are cut off to be use das keys (Die sieben Raben), toes and heels are cut off so that a shoe might fit (Aschenputtel), mirrors produce neuroses (Schneewittchen) and a spindle’s prick results deep, long sleep (Dornröschen). How does feminist work in New Materialism open up new perspectives for teaching and research?
For this panel, we seek
• Contributions that deal with teaching and learning about fairy tales with feminist approaches / new materialism / object-oriented ontology
• Contributions that re-visit the relationship of female figures and material objects.
• Contributions that will explore new perspectives on the relationship between theories of Romanticism, women and contemporary concerns for environmentalism.
• Contributions that ask how approaches in new New Materialism or Object-oriented Ontology criticize anthropocentrism – how we can look at fairy tales with objects, not humans in the center?
• Contributions exploring questions like:
o How can we see nonhuman processes working in fairy tales? What could they teach?
o How can we re-think sources of ethics and fairy tale justice?
o How can we consider positive engagements between women and literal material objects within the fairy tale world?
o How can we highlight instances in which both women and materials exhibit capacities as agents? Ho can their collaborative efforts have the power of changing and indeed transforming a wide array of social systems?
o How do we need to re-think gender in new materialism?
o How does matter come to matter in fairy tales?
o How do we read the fluxes of matter and mind, body and soul, nature and culture in fairy tales?
o How do we need to re-think binaries nature-culture, matter-discourse?
We encourage proposals for all levels of instruction.
