2019/20 Courses

Course Title: Gods of Today
Course Number: C2226687
Course Description: Who are the gods of today? Have the ancient gods been replaced by new divinities? Or have the gods all departed? This course will appeal to anyone interested in the range of characters who have been thought of as divine from ancient times until the present. We will imagine ourselves at the dawn of humanity as we compare the sun gods who were so central to early religions. We encounter the diverse pantheon of Greek gods, the unruly Norse gods, and African and American tricksters. We will hear about the death of the great god Pan and the coming of Christ. Finally, we will consider the new gods of the modern age, from the personal gods of the visionary poet William Blake to the gods of Media, Technology, and the Market, as found in Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods.
