GERM 437 - Grim[m] Fairy Tales
This undergraduate course provides an overview of the genre that is perhaps most commonly associated with German literature. It includes some of the best known fairytales collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Students read and discuss these fairytales from the standpoint of major interpretative frameworks, trace their origins and historical development, consider their echoes and subversions in contemporary writing, and examine their significance in German cultural history. As a Level V course, Grim(m) Fairytales continues to target upper-level language abilities, particularly critical reading of complex academic texts, formal presentation of findings, writing of descriptive and interpretive precis pertaining to some of these texts, leading discussions, and creative writing.
