COR 270 - Heroines and Heroes


Western culture has long reserved a special word for the greatest human achievements: heroic. Heroic tales range from ancient epics to today’s movies, sports broadcasts, political campaigns etc. What do heroic stories tell us about who we are, have been, and aspire to be? Does heroic describe our ultimate potential, or has it lost meaning? This course examines heroines/heroes in wide-ranging works, adopting varied critical approaches to examining their profound influence on how we understand ourselves and our world.
