Tucson Humanities Festival – 'Transformation: Story, Character & Meaning Across Time & Space'

When: October 20, 2021 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Tucson Humanities Festival: Transformation

Stories of transformation abound in our world – in mythology, folklore, literature and real life. Shapeshifters alter form, disguises alter appearance and journeys alter character. But over time, through telling and re-telling, stories themselves transform as well. And perspectives can shift understanding, so a hero in one land becomes a monster in another. In this presentation, explore stories of transformation and stories that transform, across the globe, from ancient to modern times, and consider what our ever-changing stories reveal about human nature.
