The project will attempt to explore how courtship, marriage, family, and divorce would be perceived by characters of the Greek mythos as they attempt to assimilate to a fictional Western culture through the use of satirical conventions. How would modern cultural normalities be accepted or rejected by these mythological figures? Would humanity welcome their assimilation or retaliate with prejudice? What roles do the many variations of love play in the Olympian lives as they navigate civil coexistence?
A very special thank you to Dr. Thomas Balazs for mentoring me for nearly two years through this project and our many revisions.
