Fairy Resources: bibliographies and links to folklore, myth, and romance writing sources

We’ve set up a new page of Resources following the ‘Ill met by moonlight’ conference. It will be a useful page for material on the conference theme of Gothic fairies and will be continually updated. It holds a partial bibliography of our own research path; in addition, some delegates generously made bibliographies for the following papers available:

Dr Bryan Brown (University of Exeter), ‘Russian Gothic faeries as harbingers of twenty-first-century ecognosis’

Morgan Daimler (Independent Researcher), ‘Unseely to antihero: Dangerous fairies in folklore and fiction’

Catherine Greenwood (University of Sheffield), ‘The Ballad of Isabel Gunn as The Daemon Lover: The economic migrant and enchantment as a recruitment strategy’

Dr Michaela Hausmann (Leipzig University), ‘An arboreal femme fatale: George MacDonald’s Maid of the Alder-tree and her literary and folkloric roots’

We’ve also added new links to some brilliant resources covering some very diverse topics related to OGOM’s research into narratives of Gothic and fabulous fiction. These can be found in the right-hand sidebar on the Blog and main Resources pages under the heading ‘Related Links’ but are listed below to show what is now available:
