Throwback Thursday 6

Hello again! We’re back with this semester’s series of Throwback Thursdays.

Mining-the-Folktale

 

This week, we’re talking about a student seminar called “Mining the Folktale,” led by Justin Dainer-Best ’09 (English, Psychology). The seminar delved into questions such as what constitutes a folktale and what purpose they serve. Participants drew from a variety of cultures, comparing structuralist readings to Grimm’s fairytales and to the Russian Baba Yaga. The seminar produced an air of camaraderie and mutual interest among the students, according to a participant.
