The Lost Princess: Women Writers and the History of Classic Fairy Tales

An online talk by Anne E. Duggan
Wednesday 28 February 2024, 6–7 p.m. GMT

When people think of fairy tales, Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and Walt Disney immediately come to mind. But, as Anne E. Duggan makes distinctly clear, women writers and storytellers, and especially Marie-Catherine d’Aulnoy, impacted the shape of classic fairy tales through the present day. The Lost Princess seeks to restore the voices of these female writers and storytellers, who shaped and contributed to fairy-tale canons, both past and present.
