Saturday, Feb. 23: Conference and Carnival, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ohio Union (Lower Level), 1739 N. High St. In the prologue to Chaucer’s Wife of Bath’s Tale, the narrator reminisces about a time when the land was full of fairies and the Elf Queen danced merrily on the green. In the centuries since Chaucer, fairies, far from disappearing, have lived on in the popular imagination and its creations. This conference is especially interested in Fairies and the Fantastic in the broadly conceived Medieval and Renaissance periods, but it also invites papers that look back to earlier examples of fairy belief or explore the uses of fairies in later popular culture. In keeping with the spirit of past PCDP events, the academic conference will be part of a broader ‘carnival’ of events and activities, including food- and cultureways demonstrations, exhibitions of artwork, books, and manuscripts, combat, gaming and cosplay. 9 9
