Scenario: Your final project will consist of an exhibit in the (imaginary) International Conference on Myth in the World, a symposium called to discover, understand, critique, and advance the mission of UNESCO, which is outlined below. In today’s globalized world, where interconnections and diversity must serve as opportunities to build peace in the minds of men and women, UNESCO's messages are of increasing importance.

  • UNESCO is responsible for coordinating international cooperation in education, science, culture, and communication. It strengthens the ties between nations and societies; it mobilizes the wider public so that each child and citizen
    • has access to quality education; a basic human right and an indispensable prerequisite for sustainable development;
    • may grow and live in a cultural environment rich in diversity and dialogue, where heritage serves as a bridge between generations and peoples;
    • can fully benefit from scientific advances;
    • can enjoy full freedom of expression—the basis of democracy, development, and human dignity.

Your exhibit at the UNESCO symposium will consist of a multimedia presentation on a particular group in a particular area, e.g., your unit in Germany or your family in the South. The exhibit will address issues regarding myth in the world. The following components are required as you build the project. Any sources used to build the parts of your project will be cited in MLA style, 8th edition.

  • Identity
    • Answer the question of identity for your group with ten short but descriptive adjectives.
  • Material Culture and History
    • Choose and explain the significance of five artifacts related to the history of your group. Explain the significance of each item to the group's history and/or important historical people in its past.
  • Origins and Others
    • Describe or tell your group's origin story, its creation myth. Remember that this is myth, not history, so tell the creation story as such, but base it on the group's history. Who are your group's enemies or others and why? These will be incorporated into your creation myth.
  • Heroes/Heroines and the Future
    • Who are your group's heroes and heroines and why? You will answer this question by writing a heroic myth.What does your group hope for, or where is it going? You will answer this question by incorporating the hoped-for future into the heroic myth.

Choose a cultural group from a specific area and time period in the 20-21st century to examine, e.g., groups: car sales people, accountants, WW II veterans, disabled veterans, the working class, evangelicals, police, urban professionals, the homeless, movie stars, refugees, immigrants, hackers, the elderly, Occupy Wallstreet activists, etc.; areas: the U.S.,Japan, India, Brazil, Germany, Canada, etc. or even a specific city; Time periods: the 1950s, the Civil War period, the 1980s etc. Your instructor must approve your choices and can help you with them. You will want to choose a group that is large enough to have a cultural mythology but small enough that you can answer the questions about it and present your findings in the workshop.
