Animals and Mythical Creatures

Myth Reading Group
Thursday 7 March 2019
12.00 – 1.30 pm
Room 5B.124

John William Waterhouse, The Siren (1900)

We are very pleased to announce that our next session will be a roundtable discussion. As a way of starting our discussion, we will consider texts on this academic year’s theme: “Animals and Mythical creatures,” and specifically extracts from the Making Monsters: A Speculative and Classical Anthology, edited by Emma Bridges and Djibril al-Ayad (2018).

We would like to invite participants to either send suggestions for extracts to be discussed at the round table or bring along short texts on the day. Please email texts or images to mythic@essex.ac.uk. All approaches to myth as well as myths from all cultures are welcome!
