Stories that Travel: Mythology, Folklore, and Diaspora

October 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

A panel discussion focusing on the varied relationships different Diaspora communities have with the mythological & folklore stories of their culture of origin. We are specifically interested in interrogating the ways in which different communities invest in or distance themselves from their ancient/classical mythology and folklore in the American Diaspora, and how those relationships have shifted over time. We will examine this question through both an academic & artistic lens.
