Syllabus:

This course explores what myths are and which methods of interpretation can assist in trying to understand them better: myths are ways to grapple with life's mysteries and problems by telling stories. The course provides insight into the definition of myth, the changing role of myth and mythical thought in Greek and Roman society, but also how myth operates today. In addition, it offers an opportunity to apply modern theories (e.g. the structuralism of Levy-Strauss; Jung's archetypes) to ancient myths. Mythic themes include Creation myths (cosmology), heroes, Centaurs and Amazons, monsters, the labyrinth and the underworld. Myth in film will also be covered.
