Classical Studies | Classical Mythology

C205/0972 carries culture studies credit.  This section also offers
your choice of 4 different discussion sections.  Through readings in
classical and modern poetry, this course will explore how different
societies adapt myth to express their own meaning.  We will discuss
poems, plays, and artwork about various mythological figures with the
following questions in mind: What is the point of revisionist
mythmaking?  Where does myth support traditional values, and how can
it operate as a vehicle of change?  Students will have an opportunity
both to analyze myths comparatively and to create their own modern re-
tellings.
