Professor Maria Tatar, professor of Germanic Languages at Harvard and a leading international scholar on myth, folklore, and fairy tales will be presenting. She is speaking with Dr. Nancy Kulish, a psychoanalyst who has challenged the usefulness of the Oedipus myth to describe girls' development. From different (and similar) disciplinary perspectives, both scholars will deconstruct feminist and gendered elements of myth and fairy tales with a particular eye on passion and the prohibitions against it.
