Meets 11:15A-12:30P TR BH 011 with C405, section no. 0980

Section 0979 open to undergraduates only.

Section 0980 open to graduate students.

This course is for students who wish to pursue ancient and
medieval mythology beyond the level
represented by C205 Classical Mythology.  We examine
selected European and ancient Near
Eastern mythological texts (Greek, Hebrew, Scandinavian,
Mesopotamian)in English translation
and also consider some of the methods and theories that have
been applied to them from
antiquity to the present.  The special theme of the course
this time will be Dying and
Disappearing Gods.
