Foundations of Arts - FOUND003 (2023)

This paper introduces students to the study of the arts, primarily through exploring human engagement with stories, both fictional and nonfictional. We begin by considering the origins of the human storytelling instinct and the earliest forms of stories, myths. Then we'll investigate various folktales and begin exploring the structures common to all stories, before turning to more modern examples and media. Then we'll look at stories about the past, and how they are both similar and different to fictional ones.
