English Fairy and Other Folk Tales
Few people know, for example, that the earliest known version of Cinderella appeared in print in China in the ninth century, and that versions of all of the classic European folk and fairy tales have been collected all over the world. This seminar will explore folk and fairy tales and their international variants as portals to the humanities in multicultural classrooms.
One of the earliest purposes for print fairy tales was to instill in children the social values of an emerging European middle-class. What might variants of these tales teach us about alternative ways of growing up in world social and historical contexts, and related ideas about engaging with the more-than-human world? While fairy tales open onto universally shared aspects of human experience, variations from different traditions offer a framework for recognizing and appreciating cultural difference in the classroom.
Fairy tales provide ample material for lessons in geography, history; language arts, speech genres and narrative performance; family and community life; and age-, class-, and gender- related social roles.
