Echoes of the Dreamtime: Decoding Myths and Fairy Tales

Speaker(s)
Description

Language, art, music and culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years ago, culminating in a symbolic explosion or ‘human revolution’ whose echoes can still be heard in myths and cultural traditions from around the world. We begin by introducing the approach to mythology of Claude Levi-Strauss, illustrating with a familiar fairy story from the Brothers Grimm collection.
