HONORS 392-4003 Heroes and Villains
Class # 41616, ONLINE, (1st) 7-week course, Brandi Venable
Why are stories about heroes and villains so compelling? Do today’s heroes and villains serve the same functions as those of the past? To arrive at answers to these and other questions we will analyze a collection of narratives across media formats. Together, we will examine the relationship between heroes and narrative structure, explore the dichotomy of good vs. evil, and discuss the cultural treatment of heroes and villains from both the present and the past.
