CLT 3378-02: Ancient Mythology East and West BEL 208 TR 9:30 am – 10:45 am Instructor: Kali Grable Office: Dodd Hall 205J Office Hours: M 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm, T 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm, and by appointment E-mail: HYPERLINK "" Course Description: The goal of this course is to examine multiculturalism through the mythologies of different societies. We will evaluate and analyze myths in an attempt to determine the nature and purpose of myth in each culture studied. We will compare and contrast the myths of the Americas, Africa, Europe, the Near East, and the Far East as we explore several common themes including but not limited to creation, destruction, the relationship of gods with humans, the trickster, the hero, and the underworld. In addition, careful examination of the myths will give us insight into the history and cultural practices of these societies. Throughout the course, we will discuss various theoretical approaches to myth and determine which of them (if any) provide a means of understanding the larger questions of mythology, such as: What are myths? Why do people create them? Are modern myths still a force in our lives today? Required Texts: Course Packet from Target Copy S. Heaney, trans., Beowulf: a New Verse Translation A selection of additional readings will be posted on the course website on Blackboard.
