Once upon a time . . . :
The Brothers Grimm and their Mark on World Culture

We know them as collectors and editors of some of the most famous fairy tales in the world.  However, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were multidisciplinary scholars who worked in several fields such as law, linguistics and government.

In 2012 we celebrate the bicentennial of the publication of Children’s and Household Tales (Kinder- und Hausmärchen), their first volume of fairy tales. In this presentation we will look at how the Brothers Grimm left their mark on world culture.

Refreshments will be provided, and the presentation is open to all.  For more information visit
