Godmothers, Wolves, and Juniper Trees: What Is a Fairytale? | Virtual

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - April 18 @ 8:00 pm

$125

“Once upon a time”—we all remember those magical words from our childhoods that swept us away to a world of sleeping princesses, magic wands, and transformed beasts—often filtered through the lens of a Disney movie. Be warned: these are not those tales! How did fairytales transform from stories for adults to staples of childhood (and back again)? Why and how do other genres utilize fairytale motifs and archetypes? Do they all end happily ever after? Considering some of the earliest versions of familiar stories, recent retellings with strange twists, and lesser-known works, we will address these and other questions. Instructor Tracey Perez is a fairytale and folklore scholar who teaches in the English Department at Queens University of Charlotte.
