Mythology: Creation Stories

What are the origins of our world?  Who are we?  Where did we come from?  Why are we here?  Cultures throughout the world have attempted to answer these eternal questions with their creation stories.  Through a cross-cultural perspective, we will examine and discuss myths from classical Greece and Rome, some Native American tribes, Hebrews and Mesopotamians, Nordic and Chinese societies, African countries, and Mayan cultures.  Reading selections will be
provided by the instructor.  Selected video programs will enhance our
understanding of these timeless tales.
