The great myths of the past were shaped by the cultures that created them. These tales of heroes, monsters and epic quests continue to shape the culture that we consume. In this class we will examine the myths from around the world. As we delve deep into them students will create a database of knowledge they can access to see how myths, previously unseen, are all around us and influence the culture we live in. We will look at current movies, books, and television shows to see how myths are used to add more dimension.
