    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Katy Kapurch is a great professor. She makes you look at various myths from both cultural and historical perspectives. This allows students to contextualize stories many have heard before, and makes them see the significance of these tales for the people who made them and believed in them. Kapurch combines literature with sociology and history, making for a fascinating and challenging course.

    Course highlights:

    As I said, you will learn to contextualize stories and tales from specific times, places, and cultures. As a result, you'll begin to look at books in a different way, questioning how and why the book and story came into being as it did. Moreover, you'll begin to see how symbolism is used to reveal the cultural and historical perspectives of both the authors of the stories and the audiences enjoying it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, read, read! There's always a trade off. Either she gives a few really short readings or only one or two long ones. But I promise you, if you don't read even the stories you think you know already, you'll be lost in the class. Also, take thorough notes and ask questions. The information is fascinating but sometimes complicated or dense. Get it down on paper so you'll remember it, and ask if you don't understand something.
