Fairytales are pervasive in our culture, from bedtime reading and Disney favorites to advertisements to mainstream films. As cultural and historical documents, fairytales also reveal much about the places they come from and the peoples that tell them. In this course we will examine the original oral versions of many well-known tales, look at the ways traditional fairytales changed through contact with the New World, analyze stories from the perspective of the folklorist, and evaluate the use of fairytales in the media.
