Prof. Haase epitomizes fairy tale studies! He and Prof. Zipes complement each other like the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in regards to their lifelong scholarly contributions to fairy tale studies. Click here to Prof. Haase's publications and expertise.
Prof. Jack Zipes is one of the most prominent and prolific scholars of fairy tales in the U.S. and worldwide. Listen to how he discovered the Grimm fairy tales while conducting research on the "Frankfurt School" as a Guggenheim scholar in Germany. His theoretical knowledge of literature and society enabled him to disseminate folk and fairy tales in a new and modern light. His acumen for finding so far unseen details in the stories that evoke justice and morality, as well as his comparative approach are the foundations of his numerous books and articles which brought him accolades from academia and popular media.
In 2023, we celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the first English publication of the brothers Grimm Fairy Tales, The German Popular Stories (London 1823).
