Likhaan: University of the Philippines Institute of Creative Writing invites everyone to attend “Myth and Writing: Notes from the Field” by Prof. J. Neil C. Garcia on 22 October 2015, from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m., at the Faculty Center, UP Diliman, Quezon City.

According to Prof. Garcia, he will “examine the idea and practice of myth in the various ways that comparative religious studies, psychology, and contemporary critical theory have defined (or appropriated) it, paying close attention to how myth has come to function as an inexhaustible source into which both artistic creativity and rational reflection now and again dip their fevered hands.”

The lecture is free and open to the public.
