Fairy Tales and the Otherwise

Guest Speaker Cristina Bacchilega

Friday, September 22, 2023 | 12:30-1:30

Centre for Research in Cultural Studies (3C25) and on Zoom

To join on Zoom contact Sabrina Mark (sa.mark@uwinnipeg.ca)

Certain fantastic tales invite us not only to go elsewhere with our imaginations, but also to imagine and think otherwise. Taking up this invitation in selected animated fairy-tale films, I focus on their storyworlds and the dynamic process of cocreation involved in storyworld thinking. These wondrous narratives present us with networks of relations that inspire moving beyond anthropocentrism, and they project or call for a counterworld to lived realities of injustice. My approach combines fairy-tale studies, postclassical narratology, cultural studies, Indigenous studies, and gender studies.

Cristina Bacchilega is Professor Emerita of English at the University of Hawai‘i-Mānoa and coeditor of Marvels & Tales: Journal of Fairy-Tale Studies. Her books include Postmodern Fairy Tales: Gender and Narrative Strategies; Legendary Hawai‘i and the Politics of Place; Fairy Tales Transformed? 21st-Century Adaptations and the Politics of Wonder, and several coedited anthologies including Inviting Interruptions: Wonder Tales in the 21st Century with Jennifer Orme.

Jaye Kovach is a multimedia and performance artist who lives as a white Magyar/Scottish settler on Treaty 4 territory (Regina, Saskatchewan). Her work, which has received local and national attention, often engages their queer and trans community, taking as its starting point his positionality as a disabled and neurodivergent, butch trans woman. In 2019, she was featured in the spotlight section of Canadian Art’s FEMME issue. In 2020, they attended the Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency. His performance work has been presented at Queer City Cinema/Performatorium, a queer media and performance art festival based in Regina that attracts international artists and filmmakers. Jaye is a current participant of Tender Container’s Peer Mentorship Platform, Do Trans People Dream of Non-binary Sheep?. She also facilitated the Capacitor project, a programming channel for Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming artists with a connection to Saskatchewan, with the University of Saskatchewan (USask) Art Galleries and Collection. Most recently they have been named interim project director for Into The Streets.

Cat Haines is a genderqueer trans woman, dyke, and academic/artist weirdo, frequently working with an autotheoretical methodology, and mediums ranging from the videogame Minecraft, to film, watercolor portraiture and figurative painting. Cat graduated with an MA in Women and Gender Studies from the University of Regina in 2021, where she wrote her thesis “Transmisogyny and the Abjection of Girlcock.” In 2022 Cat released “Trans Feminist Self Help Zine: Volume 0” with the micropress Gravitron where she critically examines her post-surgically transitioned body and the industrial medical complex that allowed her surgically transition.
