A Few Big Assignments
Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would absolutely recommend this course. The information was an in-depth look at all of the fairy tales, hist, literature, and myths you've heard and read about your entire life, but from the wildly interesting point of view of how they were affected by or directed toward women from the very beginning starting with the belief in, terror of, and aversion to witches.
I was never very good at remembering history, but this class re-taught me the things I had forgotten in a way that I would never forget again. We started with a few of the most basic of the Grimm Fairytales, then moved to the history portion where we went throughout history pulling things apart to find their stems in the witch crazes.

Advice for students:
If you don't read at least 60% of the assigned readings (which there are a lot of) you will not do well in the course.
