Centre for Myth Studies

Part of Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies

Our Centre raises awareness of the importance of myth within the contemporary world.

Established in 2008, the Centre for Myth Studies provides a forum for those working on myth at the University of Essex, other universities and institutions in the UK and across the globe.

We promote the interdisciplinary study of myth  through reading groups, an online discussion list, open seminars, international conferences, and publications.
