Description

What does studying the composition of fairy tales tell us? And what does it say about the concept of “normal,” as well? This digital asynchronous panel presentation, “Snow Maidens, Vampires, and Sleepless Princesses: The Composition of Fairy Tales,” offers a series of presentations in which students were asked to evaluate the composition of a particular fairy tale using the Aarne-Thompson-Uther (or ATU) folktale motif index, which classifies fairy and folk tales based on shared themes and elements (called motifs). Three talented students will examine the ways that motifs and tale types have been passed down in oral and literary traditions, as well as the ways they address our contemporary world, either through new tellings or by connecting old themes with new meanings
