Course Description

Everyone is familiar with fairy tales. From their ancient roots in the oral tradition to more contemporary postmodern versions, they retain a powerful hold over our cultural imagination. Fairy tales help to inculcate the norms of our society into the minds of children and adults alike. In our course, we will have a closer look at “classic” as well as modern fairy tales. We will investigate in how far fairy tales have evolved and what happens if we re-tell and re-invent or even subvert “classic” fairy tales.
This Blockseminar is designed to give you an outlook on what it means to work scientifically. On five Saturdays, you will learn creative and academic writing which will culminate in a small conference at which you will present your papers – via the up-and-coming form of a Science Slam. As this course is taking place only on weekends, students are expected to do their own research and writings and present their findings/output to the group.
Meeting on the weekends, you will be tutored not only by the lecturers but also by your fellow students and thus it requires active participation as well as the incentive to work autonomously. As this is a project seminar, we can take only 15 participants in the "2. Studienphase". Students who would like to participate should apply via email to: christian.lenz@tu-dortmund.de by March, 19th.
