    The Gods are Us: Classical Greek Myth and Story

    Our Ancestors write the myths and stories that shape how we see the world.  In the European tradition, most of the allegories for our our minds and hearts were given to us by the Greeks.  Let us remember the myths of Zues, Athena, Aphrodite, Aplollo, Hades Demeter, the tales of Homer and Ovid.  We will consider the uses of myth in art, and follow it into the dark burrows of our subconscious.  Monsters, stupid gods, ravishing women, ravished men, lustful rivers, and impossibilities that could not be more true.

    Instructor: Douglas Kenning, PhD
