In a few weeks’ time, I shall be heading to Warsaw for a programme of workshops, beginning on 14 May, in connection with the project Our Mythical Childhood. Along with the other speakers, I have been given the opportunity to set pre-event readings and tasks. What I have decided to do is to so set some homework!Here are the tasks I have set. All are welcome to take part, irrespective of whether you’ll be gathering in Warsaw!
I have decided to respond as follows to the option of setting homework ahead of our gatherings in Warsaw.
In preparation for my session – which will take place on the Wednesday – I would like to invite you to read the blog that I write on my work for the ‘autism’ wing of our project: https://myth-autism.blogspot.co.uk/
In particular, I would suggest that you read the postings that I put up during February 2018. These present the activities that I have drafted concerning the Choice of Hercules. The specific links are below.
As optional extra homework, I would like to invite you to join an Academia Session that I set up recently for discussion of the blog and in particular of the Choice of Hercules activities. If you’d like to make any comments here, I would be honoured. Those of you who have already joined the Session (thank you so much) have already completed this part of the homework!
