About this course:

From Gidget to Repo Man, from Chinatown to La La Land; Los Angeles has emerged as a mythic place in the collective consciousness. Using the city as our laboratory, we explore the ways myth, legend, and folklore in an urban space develop, how they are conveyed between people; and how they function to help individuals make sense of complex social, cultural, and political environments. Our discovery process includes discussions on film and television, literature, historical interpretations, anthropology, and ethnography. Personal experiences and anecdotes are encouraged.
