Virtual Talk in Chinese: Mythological Stories through Art and Literary Works

中文云講座:神話故事會

English: Mythology is our ancestors’ attempt to explain the origins of the universe and the fundamentals of humanity. Mythological stories are therefore very old, often thousands of years old. Nevertheless, they are also right here and right now, and the morals and values they reflect are timeless and are still relevant today. In this six-part series, we have compiled a list of popular mythological stories from the Greek and Roman cultures and from the Judeo-Christian tradition. We will recount these stories and explore how such stories appear and reappear in artworks and literary writings. Our presenter John Wang holds master's degrees in World Religions from Harvard University and in English Literature from Shanghai International Studies University. He is a contributor to World Journal Weekly and Xinmin Evening Newspaper. Join us on Zoom: https://queenslib.org/3uqtL5k Meeting ID: 879 1679 9003 Passcode: 662775
Chinese: 神話是遠古時期民衆對於自然世界、對於社會現象以及人類行爲的探索和解讀。每個民族和傳統都有自己豐富多彩的神話故事,而這些故事又常常爲后人所用,反覆出現在之后的藝術作品和文學著作裏。我們這一系列,從希臘神話、羅馬神話和猶太基督傳統,挑選了一些著名的神話故事,從神話的元素、結構、種類等不同方面展開,和大家一起欣賞了解這些故事的內容和意義,以及它們對於不同時期許多文學家和藝術大師的影響。 講師王志強是哈佛大學比較宗教學碩士,上海外國語大學英美文學碩士,曾多次在世界日報周刊和新民晚報發表作品。 Zoom鏈接: https://queenslib.org/3uqtL5k 會議號碼: 879 1679 9003 密碼: 662775
