The ancients used stories ηυθος (myth “story”) to explain ἱστορία (history “inquiry”). The modern assumption is that history is fact, where as myth is the falsehood or falsified story. This course will look in detail at the importance of myth in history and history in myth by illuminating how the realities of society are expressed in the modern genre of fantasy and its historical/mythological basis using recreated and reimagined historical and religious archetypes.
