Marvels & Tales is a peer-reviewed journal of fairy-tale studies. International and multidisciplinary in orientation, the journal publishes rigorous scholarly work dealing with the fairy tale in any of its diverse manifestations and contexts.
Marvels & Tales recognizes that interest in the fairy tale crosses cultural as well as disciplinary boundaries. Accordingly, the journal addresses a multidisciplinary audience and provides a central forum for fairy-tale scholars in disciplines such as literary studies, folklore, psychology, gender studies, children's literature, social and cultural history, anthropology, film studies, ethnic studies, art and music history, and others.
Committed to promoting advances in fairy-tale studies, Marvels & Tales encourages research that introduces and explores new or neglected subject areas, as well as work that reconsiders the fairy-tale canon in light of new critical approaches and theories. Because many contemporary questions in fairy-tale studies require interdisciplinary answers, Marvels & Tales also seeks to promote informed research addressing more general issues that cross or transcend traditional disciplinary borders.
In addition to publishing original scholarly articles, Marvels & Tales publishes translations of historically important research, texts and translations of fairy tales and related primary documents, illustrations, critical exchanges, and reviews of recent books and other media.
