Dorothee Ostmeier, Professor of German and Folklore and Public Culture, shares these highlights from her new course, “FLR 4/510 Fantasy Studies Now” taught in Spring 2019.
The class used examinations of the multidimensional categories of the fantastic to re-examine and move beyond Vladimir Todorov’s definition of the Fantastic and work towards defining the broad connotations of the term fantasy as it applies to literary and postmodern popular culture. After defining a theoretical framework, discussions led to individual research and collaborative public engagement projects that were presented in class.
