Laura Gibbs - Myth-Folklore | Indian Epics

Spring 2018 Enrollment: There will be ONE section of Myth-Folklore (MLLL-3043-995) and TWO sections of Indian Epics (MLLL-4993-995 and MLLL-4993-996).

The Myth-Folklore class counts for upper-division Gen. Ed. Western Culture and Indian Epics counts for upper-division Gen. Ed. NON-Western Culture. Both courses have a junior-standing prerequisite because of the high demand for online Gen. Ed. courses.

If the course you want is full when your window opens, then sign up for the waiting list at One.ou.edu. When any vacancy opens up, it will be filled automatically from the waiting list.

If the Myth-Folklore class is full, I would encourage you to think about taking Indian Epics! The course format is the same for both; the only difference is the reading... and the reading for Indian Epics is really exciting: thanks to a grant from Bizzell Library, we have a complete collection of Amar Chitra Katha comic books from India, graphic novels inspired by the epics, plus books by contemporary Indian writers like Devdutt Pattanaik and Chitra Divakaruni.
