FINAL ASSIGNMENT: I am thinking of writing about the Little Mermaid

Topic: I'm thinking about exploring how gender roles have evolved with this fairytale.


The Little Mermaid: Three Political Fables




Lost Property Fairy Tales: Ogawa Yōko and Higami Kumiko's Transformations of “The Little Mermaid”



Content Analysis and Gender Stereotypes in Children's Books




THESIS (rough draft):

Disney's The Little Mermaid's portrayal of gender roles have been altered, but not made more equal than the original fairytale.

Visual Analysis: I am thinking of doing Beauty and the Beast.

I am trying to decide between a few different illustrations. I think I want to compare and contrast the way the beast is usually portrayed (in Disney and many old illustrations) with one or more of these illustrations:

That's a great fairy tale, and there are a LOT of visual representations of that tale to analyze! In fact, Hearne did a case study on this fairy tale, compiling different variations (including illustrations). She also has a good article with some illustrations.

Wow, these are really loaded images (a LOT of potential readings you could do here (from the way Beauty has no shoes in the first image, to her body position in the other two - regarding her attraction to the Beast). Looking forward to how you compare this with the literary tale!

That's a great fairy tale (and it has evolved a lot recently)!

This is a good working thesis. As you revise, think about ways to make it more specific. How are gender roles revised? And what is the significance of this?
