You may have your own! Tangherlini, Timothy R. “Cinderella in Korea: Korean Oikotypes of AaTh 510,” Fabula 35 (1994), 282-304. 1. What does “oikotype” mean? “Oikotype is a technical term within folkloristics and specifically within the historic-geographic method pioneered in Scandinavia. It was coined by Carl Von Sydow (1878-1952) to refer to regional variation, that is, to forms of a folktale or song that developed their own distinctive forms and histories because of local cultural conditions.” -- Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, Dept. of Performance Studies, NYU – ref: http://h- net.msu.edu/cgi-bin/logbrowse.pl?trx=vx&list=h- judaic&month=9801&week=c&msg=Iiq5mvuNR7TvXj3IsOCJ1A&user=&pw = 2. What are the four mediated societal oppositions identified by Tangherlini in K’ongjwi Patjwi? pp. 287-288: “These are high status/low status, male/female, and young/old. Through the process of the fairy tale, each of these oppositions is successfully mediated in the hero’s or heroine’s eventual marriage. […] A fourth mediated opposition exists, which is not found in the European tradition, namely the opposition of filial/nonfilial.” 289: “A main aspect of the story is negotiating this familial dysfunction through the reestablishment of an acceptable familial order. As we will see,-all four of the categories outlined above—the three suggested by Holbek—and the filial/nonfilial opposition, are mediated successfully through the tale process, with primary emphasis being placed on the categories filial/nonfilial and high status/low status.” 3. How have Buddhist beliefs influenced the tale of K’ongjwi Patjwi? 296: “The lotus blossom is an important flower in Buddhist teachings, and is taken to be a representation of the cleansed spirit. Lotus blossoms grow from the muddy and murky depths of ponds and represent a startling transformation from dirt and darkness into purity and brightness. Through chanting, the Buddhist is able to cleanse the spirit and reemerge as a lotus blossom. […] The cleansing aspect of the bath and K’ongjwi’s ultimate reincarnation as a spiritually clean lotus

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
