Modern Myths Panel:
What are our modern myths? Do comics qualify? Do TV Shows, or Movies? for example: Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Babylon 5, Star Wars, Firefly, Handmaid’s Tale, All in the Family, M.A.S.H, Charmed, LoTR, Harry Potter. To decide we must determine what a myth is, and what is its function. Which stories do you think serve our culture as modern myths? What heroes? Spiderman, Superman, Dorothy Gale, and Alice? What roles to these tales play in forming our world views?
