ANT 220 - Fairy Tales & Folk Tales

3 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.

This course is designed to introduce students to ethnic diversity and the symbolic richness of fairy and folk tales, shared by all humanity through the transmission of archetypal principles and their practical application in everyday life. We will investigate how traditional tales such as Snow White, Cinderella, Brer Rabbit, the Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and King Arthur have become part of mainstream culture and the ways they contribute to the creation of cultural identity and worldview, including the formation of both social and personal values and character around the world. We will discuss their evolution from origins/oral tradition and various retellings to the contemporary moment through interaction with a variety of formats and media. Through a holistic anthropological approach, we will attempt to understand how people with different environments, religions, ethnicities, genders, and core cultural values fit together in the modern, and sometimes not so modern world.
Usually offered Fall and Spring semesters
General Education: Meets SUNY requirement for Humanities (H) and Other World Civilizations (OW). These courses appear in more than one category and can be used to satisfy at most two requirements.
