List of abstracts for the IV International HCA conference - Hans Christian Andersen between children's literature and adult literature
The Queen and I
'The Snow-Queen' (1845) has a few years ago been read by H. M. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark on Danish tv, illustrated by a selection of her own so-called découpages (collages of picture clippings), and the Danish Queen has also let this fairy tale cum découpages be published in book form. This lecture will endeavor to characterize the implicit interpretation. - A Radio satire and/or parody of Andersen's 'The Snow-Queen' - brought àjour from an alltogether different angle - was broadcast by the Danish public service radiostation in eight short installments during this year's easterweek. The lecture will endeavor to characterize the quite outspoken interpretation in this case as well. - Andersen's complicity in both cases shall be nailed. - The tv-film (now for sale on dvd) as well as the radio broadcasts (now for sale on cd) will be comfortably accessible at intervals during the conference.
