Myths and Legends

Course Code:

Focus on the similarities and differences between cultures through their myths and legends. Myths are narratives which embody and transmit universal and elementary forms of human thought and social patterning. Many myths emerge at the dawn of human culture out of prehistorically oral and ritualistic traditions, and are often used as a way to explain aspects of a universe which otherwise did not seem to make sense. Examine, analyze and compare myths and legends from a variety of cultures. Use a variety of approaches from psychology to anthropology in an effort to understand the significance of myths and legends in a culture. By discussing stories from different cultures, see the common threads of the human experience.
