From April 22 through April 25, 2009, the conference on “The Fairy Tale after Angela Carter” was held at the University of East Anglia (UK) to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber, a story collection that has had a profound and pervasive impact on our understanding of and engagement with the fairy tale. The objective of the conference was to use this important anniversary as an opportunity to reflect on the legacy of Angela Carter and to examine the state of the fairy tale and fairy-tale studies today.
