Myth Finding Assignment
Short Paper 1: Myth Finding Assignment
Choose a goddess found in any pantheon or mythology in any region of the world. She can be one that is found in our reading from Week Four. Explain her place in the pantheon, what are her areas of concern, and any other important information about her. Either briefly describe how she interacts with humans or share an important story about her interaction with humans. Then, find three similar or borrowed versions of that goddess. These versions can be from other pantheons, mythologies, analyses, people appropriating the goddess for corporate or other modern/post-modern means, etc. For each of the 3 versions: (1) Give a summary of each of the 3 presentation of the goddess; and, (2) a short explanation that compares each of the three versions to the original.
Your paper should be about 500-750 words long.
