LITR341 - Folklore

 

This course provides a survey of folk literature. Special emphasis is placed on identifying archetypes, themes, and motifs, which are the common threads of orally transmitted literature across place and time, which also carry over into other forms of literature and popular culture. Assigned readings represent a sampling of folklore from around the world from ancient to modern eras. Some subjects include: magic, tricksters, heroism, taboo, and shapeshifters. Students will participate in a research project throughout the course. (Prerequisite: ENGL101 or ENGL110)
