Title:  "There and Back Again: Constructing the Story World of Ancient Greek Myth"

Professor Johnston will discuss some of her recent work on how Greek myths helped to create and sustain religious beliefs.  She will draw on current work done by narratologists such as Michael Saler and Mark Wolf about what makes a story world credible and coherent, and discuss how the story world of Greek myth did—and did not—align with those criteria.
