NR 380 – Nature in Storytelling Over the Centuries (3)

Examines the historic tendency across cultures to mythologize elements of the natural world, resulting in celebrated myths, fables, and stories. The course examines nature-based folklore from past centuries, uncovering early perceptions of landscapes, creatures, and plants held by societies and cultures. Focus then shifts to exploration of how elements of the natural world have been portrayed in contemporary film, television, and advertising, revealing how perceptions of nature have evolved over the past century. Connections between contemporary popular culture and old-world myths, fables, and stories will thus be revealed.
