GERM 14 Into the Woods: The Brothers Grimm and the European Folklore Tradition

This course examines the classical origins, artistic form, and modern legacy of the folktales famously collected by the Brothers Grimm, situating them in both their German and their wider European context. Students investigate the cultural, political, and psychological influences of the folktale genre on individuals, social groups, and nation-states from antiquity to the present. Class discussions consider renditions of the tales in various media (including illustrated editions and films) and treat contemporary topics such as childhood pedagogy, gender, social (in)justice, psychology, and political ideology.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
