this 4-credit course, taught in English, students will engage with
selected folk and fairy tales primarily focusing on collections by the
Grimm and tales written by Hans Christian Andersen, locating them in the
19th-century German or Danish culture of their origins and then
examining how they became transformed into perennial favorites of U.S.
popular culture through their adaptations by Disney
(feature animation films). Importantly, in doing so we will explore and
discuss how folk and fairy tales have shaped and continue to impact
ideologies of identity and belonging, particularly in constructed
categories such as gender, race, sexuality, and ability.
This is an introductory course; there are no prerequisites, and no prior
knowledge is required. (GenEd AL+DG)
