Throughout time, myths have been created and maintained for varying reasons. Some myths may be created primarily for social or political purposes, such as The Aeneid and Children of the Sun. Some myths are created to explain man’s actions and responsibilities during natural events, as in Demeter and Persephone. Still others explore the strengths or weaknesses of the human spirit, such as Esfandyar and Caught by a Hair-String.

Using one of two approaches – a single myth or a single theoretical viewpoint – you will explore the facets of myth making and myth perpetuation that we discovered in this course.

 

time – this is exactly what I am looking for in this assignment!)

  • View the “Guide to Writing the Final Project”       below  for precise instructions for writing the      essay.
  • Select one of the following two approaches below      for your essay:
  • Single myth: In       this project, you will take one of the myths that we have covered in the       course, and examine the myth using 2-4 theoretical approaches to       mythology that were covered in Module 1 (feminist, anthropological,       Marxist, psychological, archeological). That is, you will be examining one myth from several perspectives.

OR

 

  • Single theoretical viewpoint: In this project, you will choose one theoretical       approach and show how the myths support that approach. You will also show the  consistency that the perspective of this       theoretical approach brings to the interpretation of the myths across       time and space.

In the essay:

  • Evaluate how society makes use of myth making. Consider      why myths were propagated from generation to generation, and why they are      still potent in the present.
  • You may explore how myths develop alongside a      culture – influenced by the changing society, and in turn how the      myths alter society OR
  • You may examine why myths that seem to      explain the creation of humanity, the structure of a particular      society, the universe. Examine how this may be happening now – what      paradigms / themes/ are resurrected in modern times?
  • Identify and share to what extent mythology is      involved in life today; for instance, what motifs from ancient myth are      used, what ideals and values from the myths are reflected in the modern      work.
  • Convey what you have learned and the connections you      have made. You must support your own connections with expert      opinions (a minimum of 4 outside references).
