Myth's Fluidity, Manipulation and Modification - ONLINE
Saturday 9th January 2021 10am-1pm
Myth is fluid and moves and changes in space and time. There are often multiple version of myths from Greece and Rome, each of which tell a slightly different story for a different reason. They were used by poets, playwrights and politicians all for their own ends. This seminar will consider various receptions of myth through the ancient world into modernity. We will examine a range of sources and by taking a structuralist approach, uncover why and how they were, and continue to be, altered over time.
