New Course Supplement 2016

FRIT 37.04 Italian Fairy Tales

We will study the rich and precocious Italian fairy-tale tradition, from the Renaissance to our times, and the ways in which its forms and contents have evolved. We will address questions concerning canon formation; the role of “marvelous” genres such as the fairy tale in socialization and the expression of national identity; and the appropriation of fairy-tale subjects and motifs by contemporary popular culture. We will also acquaint ourselves with a variety of critical approaches to the fairy tale, and consider some of the other European fairy-tale traditions, especially the French and the German.

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.
