WG 211 Women in Myth and Fairy Tale Take Home Final Choose ONE of the following  questions, and  answer it with  an 8 to 10 page evidence- based  essay: A)  To what extent do myths, folk tales, and  fairy tales shape culture, and  to what  extent   does culture shape myths, folk tales, and  fairy tales?  Use class readings, handouts,   discussions, and  the videos for examples to support  your statements.   B)  Choose one story or novel from four of the five sections of the syllabus  (Women's   Quest as Told by Men, Women's Quest as Told by Women, etc.).  Discuss how  all of the   women  enact power  in each of the four stories you select (don't  choose an analytical  reading!), and  what that depiction  reveals about the author's/culture’s assumptions,   background,  and  purposes.  Be sure to note how  power  itself is conceptualized  in each   story:  is it a traditional, power-over type or is it power-with, or empowerment?  Or is it  a combination  of the three -- or is it something  else altogether?

What students are saying

    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.
