CANCELED Workshop: “Epic: The Myth in Epic Narratives”

Humanities and Social Sciences building, Rm. 307

English Department

This workshop has been canceled.

The epic genre is a typical mode for elements of the mythic. Epic narratives capture a broad snapshot of human experience.

Panelists will discuss how the epic mode allows us to explore what is myth; how do questing, pilgrimage, journey, and transformation narratives shape the discourse around what a myth is; and how we do we talk about it. They also will discuss what points of connection epics have in current scholarship, and how personal narratives (diaries, journals, memoirs) use elements of the epic narrative.

English Graduate Organization Conference special panel: Melanie Holm, Joseph Sanpietro (Department of English)

This workshop is free and open to the community.
