Explore what it means to be human in the 21st century. Together we will compare Western cultural narratives with some alternative stories, asking how the literature that surrounds us has perhaps contributed to the climate emergency that we now face. How do stories affect the way we see ourselves? How do myths enter our culture and affect our perceptions of the world? We will conclude with the creation of some new stories that rewrite the way we see ourselves, offering hope and sustainability for the future.
