GERMN 241: German Fairy Tales 

Pre- or Coreq: ENGL 120. Fulfills "Creative Expression" or GER 2/C. Fulfills Pluralism & Diversity Group D. Writing Intensive.

Fairy tales are known all over the world. The most famous European book of fairy tales is the one collected by the Brothers Grimm. These stories have entered our collective unconscious but are not easily explained. We shall look at various attempts at explaining what fairy tales are all about, look at older stories that served as models for the Brothers Grimm and study modern versions of the tales including scenes from Walt Disney movies and "politically correct fairy tales." Students will read fairy tales, tell one that they know, and there will be regular written assignments, a midterm and final examination. All readings, discussions and written work will be in English. This course has a "W" designation.  
Course requirements:
attendance and participation; regular preparation of readings; regular writing assignments. 
Exam Format: written midterm and final exams

Jack Zipes, The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, ISBN 978-0553382167
