This two-part class, held in English, describes common creatures belonging to Swedish folklore and the historical context in which they were formed. We will read about superstitions that went hand-in-hand with folklore, and remnants of both folklore and superstitions that we still see in Swedish culture today. We will also take a look at how folklore has left its mark on today’s Swedish language. You will have a chance to read short folklore stories (in translation) to see for yourself typical folklore characteristics. Materials provided by instructor. Välkommen!
