Syllabus:

This course functions as an extension of CLAS 2032 Classical Mythology. It 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. Key mythical figures (for instance Prometheus, Heracles and monsters such as the Minotaur and Medusa) and important mythical concepts (the labyrinth and the underworld) will be evaluated and analysed within the context of the ancient societies of Greece and Rome and their reception in the modern world. Students will be given the opportunity to self-direct their own learning within the course by leading group discussions and locating additional primary and secondary sources on myth which they will analyse and present within small group tutorials.
