II. Symposium on Mythology (Myths in the Ancient and Modern World) -03-04-05/06/2020, Ardahan (Turke
The topic of our Symposium is broadly the study of myths in various academic branches, such as archaeology, classics, history and philosophy. Although myths seem to be equated with superstitions, fantasies or false beliefs beginning probably from the early modern period, the studies in clinical psychology and philosophy during the so-called postmodern era disclosed that myths are ingrained in the very fabric of human psyche and social life. With a view to examining the reception of mythology in the contemporary world, our second symposium will focus on the literary and philosophical analysis of myths, the role of myths in nation-building and the interaction between cultures through myths.
