semester the class will form six panels, each of which
will explore a different topic pertaining to classical
mythology: creation, metamorphoses, monsters, customs,
rape, and fate.
panels give students an ongoing opportunity to explore a topic
on their own, and to coordinate their findings with their
fellow panelists. Each panel will present a summary
of findings to date, and take questions from the other students
in the class, who will constitute the audience.
will convene on four days: October 27 and 29, and December
1 and 3 (three panels each day). Please consult the
Topics and Presentations pages for further details.
bear in mind that work on the panels counts toward 20% of
your final grade in CC 220. Consistent effort will strengthen
your understanding of the topic, and enhance your performance
on the panel. Re-reading the myths with an eye toward
your topic, and taking notes as you read, will prove an effective
method of preparation.
