From Cinderella to Mulan: The Sociology of Disney Princesses in Splash! 2009 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2009)
Behind the entertaining stories and catchy songs that characterize Disney movies, a whole new world of sociological study can be opened up by studying the evolution of Disney Princess. From the passive Snow White to the headstrong Ariel, Disney princesses hold a mirror to the transformation of women in Western society. This class will be a quick jaunt through Disney while taking a look at the implications the portrayal of princesses has for modern society. Of course, discussion will be supplemented with primary research (i.e. watching clips of Disney movies).

So, Confirm or Ignore?
