授業内容 Course Content
This course examines representations of gender and local culture in contemporary fairy-tale adaptations in transnational contexts as discussed in Cristina Bacchilega’s “Genre and Gender in the Cultural Reproduction of India as “Wonder” Tale” (2004). Drawing on postcolonial literary criticism such as Edward Said’s Orientalism (1978) and Sadhana Naithani’s The Story-Time of the British Empire: Colonial and Postcolonial Folkloristics (2010), we will analyse how the three intercultural novels, Salman Rushdie’s Haroun and the Sea of Stories (1990), Chitra Banerhee Divakaruni’s Mistress of Spices (1997), and Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things (1997), invoke the discourse of the fairy tale in order to challenge the Orientalist notion of India as an exotic land of wonder.
