Mythopoeia at SBU Libraries

On April 25th, the University Libraries co-hosted a colloquium event held in conjunction with Mr. Luca Zanchi’s CLL 215 course.  Entitled, “Mythopoeia: Understanding Myth in its Making,” the event featured presentations by Mr. Zanchi, Dr. Sophie Raynard-Leroy (Assoc. Professor of French and Comparative Literature, Stony Brook University), and Ms. Angela Infante (international collage artist based in Italy and special guest in CLL 215), as well as several students from the class.  This interdisciplinary, multimodal conversation was an opportunity to engage with the archetypes, images, and preconceptions surrounding mythology and fairy tale studies.  The Libraries are very pleased to collaborate with faculty, students, and guests to foster the communication of research and creative work.
