Ideas on Tap: Myth Matters


Myth Matters: Meaning Making and the Myths in Everyday Modern Life


The term “myth” can remind us of childhood fairy tales or suggest something that isn’t true. But the study of Mythology may offer insight into our current experience. In this free Ideas on Tap talk, Folklorists and Champlain College Associate Professors Kerry Noonan and Steve Wehmeyer will lead a spirited discussion of how Myths can help form meaning—for good or ill—in everyday life.

The Ideas on Tap series is designed to convene informal, informative, and provocative conversations, and to strengthen them with a scholar’s expertise. These events are held in partnership with the University of Vermont’s Humanities Center.
