Week 1

Welcome to Greek and Roman Mythology! This first week we'll introduce the class, paying attention to how the course itself works. We'll also begin to think about the topic at hand: myth! How can we begin to define what we're studying? How does myth work? What have ancient and modern theorists, philosophers, and other thinkers had to say about myth? This week we'll also begin our foray into Homer's world, with an eye to how we can best approach epic poetry.

Readings: No assigned texts this week.
Video Lectures: 1.1-1.7
Quiz: Complete the quiz by the end of the week deadline, Sunday, 9/30/12, 11:59pm New York time.
