Great news from the “Our Mythical Childhood” project!

Congratulations to all involved in the wonderful volume Our Mythical Hope. The Ancient Myths as Medicine for the Hardships of Life in Children’s and Young Adults’ Culture, which arises from the Our Mythical Childhood project. This open-access (🎉) edited volume considers how “the authors of literary and audiovisual texts for youth make use of the ancient myths to support their young protagonists (and readers or viewers) in crucial moments of their existence, on their road into adulthood, and in those dark hours when it seems that life is about to shatter and fade away” (quoted from descriptor found here). If you are interested in how ancient mythology remains relevant for and useful to us today, this volume is for you, and you can download a copy of the volume here!
