Cultural Permutations of Myths

Choose a mythic character (female, male, hermaphrodite, transgender, etc.) found in a mythic tradition from any region of the world. The character can be one that is found our Learning Resources lists, or discovered during your own research.

First, discuss the importance of the character in in terms of interaction with humans based on an important story or social function. Then, find three other versions of that character from other cultures, historical times, or social contexts. With each of these three versions of the original: (1) Give a summary of each of these presentations; and, (2) give a short explanation that compares each of the three versions to the original.

The paper should be 4 pages or about 1,000-1,400 words in length, in size 12 Times New Roman font, double-spaced, and follow MLA or another style guide format.
