GSS 320: Sex, Gender, and Fairy Tales
Prof. Terra Joseph
Think you know fairy tales? Think again. It’s not all princes, princesses, and
happy endings—even when it is. From the early literary fairy tale by Italian
authors, to the 17th-century French women writers who named and
popularized the genre, to the 18th- and 19th-century stories geared toward
children, to Disney and beyond, we’ll analyze fairy tales to see what they
tell us about gender and sexuality historically and today. We’ll read classic
fairy tales from around the world and look at feminist and queer retellings
as well, examining how fairy tale themes and motifs permeate our culture.
This course fills the Literature requirement for General Education in the
College of Arts and Sciences under The Aesthetic Perspective: The Arts and
the Human Spirit.
