Dr. Don Haase is a Professor of German Studies in the Department of Classical and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. He is also an Associate Dean in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
Haase is also well known among many readers here as the editor of Reception of Grimm's Fairy Tales: Responses, Reactions, Revisions (Amazon has a copy bargain priced for $8.78 when I built this link, but no cover image, alas. Someone snatch it up quick! Worth every penny!) and the The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Folktales and Fairy Tales 3-volume set which is rumored to be getting an expanded edition. (I haven't followed up on that!) and Fairy Tales and Feminism: New Approaches (Fairy-Tale Studies).
And he is series editor of the Fairy Tales and Folklore Studies Series in Fairy-Tale Studies from Wayne State, too.
And he's also just a generous and enjoyable scholar...he is also on Twitter if you are interested in following him!
