MYTH & REALITY

2014-2015

During this Year of Myth and Reality, we are hosting events, discussions, activities, and academic explorations of the ways myth and reality interact, conflict, cross boundaries, create lines of division, interplay, and thus affect one another and our world.

The title provides the frame for topics that encourage academic debate as the college aims to consider:
- the definitions of “myth” and “reality”
-explore issues related to mythology
- investigate mythology’s impact on human thought, health, and behavior
-critically examine the history and future of mythology and its relationship to individuals, communities, governments, and the world.
