Fairy tales are all about lost princesses, handsome princes, and happily ever afters...or are they? While Disney has made fairy tales family friendly, they actually have a much darker history. In this class, we’ll start by reading classic fairy tales to learn more about their history, then move on to modern stories that offer fresh twists on an old form. Finally, we’ll wrap everything up by looking at the Disneyfication of fairy tales and how they’ve made these stories mainstream. All of the readings and viewings will be provided digitally.
