Spring 2022 Courses / Literature / MYTHOLOGY

Coordinators: Donna Ramer, Mary Ann Donnelly , Sheryl Harawitz

Myths are more than mere stories; they are sacred, timeless tales that guide us to understand how cultural norms and values were established.

This semester, we will take a look at: how the gods have been honored — or punished — when sent to the skies to become constellations; the gods of nature and death/darkness; how mythology has influenced authors of plays; and Japanese, Norse/Viking and Native American gods.
