ENG-3270 Myth and Myth Making

3 credits

Prerequisite: ENG-1052 and ENG-1310, and one 2000-level survey course (ENG-2171 or ENG-2172 or ENG-2281 or ENG-2282 or ENG-2283 or ENG-2321 or ENG-2322 or ENG-2510).

An interdisciplinary, team-taught inquiry which provides an overview of myth and the myth-making process, this course focuses especially on quest myths and on myths concerning sacrifice, death and rebirth. Though most myths read will be Greek, students will also be encouraged to explore Native American and other mythologies. The course will emphasize the ways myth has been used by dramatists, poets and visual artists. (Spring semesters, even years) Meets Part III of the GECC.
