VPAS6374 - Myth In/And Media

VPAS 6374 Myth In/And Media (3 semester credit hours) The class will explore, from a mythological perspective, how we have come to live in a world surrounded by an increasingly pervasive, powerful deluge of mythologically-informed media representations. Yet the content, language, formations, and templates applied are mythological, if not fundamental, to the origins of human consciousness and civilization. Includes mythological examinations of popular television programs, music videos, computer games, comic books, and films. (3-0) T
