    Have classes in folk tales. Anthropology departments have courses in folk lore.

    I can tell you that my folk tales class was a rigorous class that required textual analysis, knowledge of European History and superior writing skills (which 2 decades on the Internet have completely obliterated).

    And do NOT call the "fairy" tales or the professor might push you into the oven with Hansel and Gretel's stepmother.

    I can't find any sort of university program for Fairy Tales in the google.

    I can't imagine that someone who studied folk tales seriously would mix up the terms.

    I dunno.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      For the general audience that she would generally be wanting to appeal to, "fairytales" would be much more romantic than "anthropology with a speciality in folk lore".

        See my comment upthread about my being boring. My brain is wired for accuracy not romance.
