A&M-Commerce Professor Publishes New Book on Cultural Impact of Fairy Tales

Dr. Maia Lamarque, professor in the Texas A&M University-Commerce Department of Literature and Languages, recently published a new book, “Fairy Tales and its Adaptations in Spanish,” which focuses on how fairy tale analysis is the paradigm of globalization. Lamarque posits that fairy tales are the emblem of the human condition, global awareness, and offer a picture and understanding of how the world is shaped by ideas and a variety of performances. This is the second book written by Lamarque in the last year. She also released “Cinderella in Spain: Variations of the Story as Socio-Ethical Texts” in 2019.
