Exploring Myth: Culture, Theory, Practice
August 31-September 2, 2012, Santa Barbara, CA
The first Symposium for the Study of Myth Co-sponsored by the Joseph Campbell Foundation, Opus Archives and Research Center, and Pacifica Graduate Institute. The Symposium will be held at Pacifica’s Ladera Lane Campus.
This interdisciplinary gathering will pay tribute to the fact that myth is a changing, elastic landscape that flourishes in surprising ways. Symposium themes are organized around three broad areas of inquiry and action: Myth in Theory, Myth in Culture, and Myth in Practice, and will include a blend of self-selecting energies and traditional formats. There will be roundtable discussion sessions, paper panels, keynote lectures by luminaries in the field of myth studies, and special events that include media presentations and performances.
