According to J.F. Bierlein, one of the most “astounding” and “interesting” consequences of the “encounters between European and the various peoples of Africa, Asia, and the Americas … was the recognition that cultures vastly separated … by time and geography had religious practices and myths” that were strikingly similar, i.e. had parallels, common themes, subjects, and characters (267page-attached). For the term paper proposal, I would like you to propose a similarity that you see between one of the classical myths (Ramayana, Metamorphoses, Trickster Tales, or one of the many myths in Parallel Myths) and a modern myth of your own choosing (film, story, etc.). If you choose one of the myths from Parallel Myths, you must research and find an extensive, original source of the myth. You are encouraged to think for yourself and come up with an interesting topic that highlights a parallel you find engaging. Please provide a clearly marked thesis (with an *) and MLA citations of the various myths you have picked. In addition to your topic, thesis, and sources, you must also pick a theorist/philosopher from the attached pdf file pp. 267-303 in Parallel Myths to ground your thinking and support your proposal. Use at least one quote from that theorist or philosopher to illustrate your concept. Your proposal should be no more than 350 words. Please be specific and professional.
