German Fairy Tales and Popular Culture (in English)
Castles, enchanted forests, princes and princesses, wicked stepmothers, dangerous beasts, moral lessons and terrible punishments: this course revisits the world of childhood bedtime stories with the aim of developing a critical appreciation of the meaning, structure, and function of classic fairy tales from the German-speaking tradition. Beginning with the tales of Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, the course also examines Disney film adaptations and modern rewritings.
