Introducing Anthropology: Magical 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. To illustrate the approach of Claude Levi-Strauss, we will begin by decoding a fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm collection.
