Тhe issue Myth and identity: a cross-cultural and intertemporal approach aims to gather diverse contributions on myths as sources of identity criteria. Possible topics are: myth, identity, alterity: personal, ethnic, gender, religious, social and cultural aspects / etiological myths, myths about autochthony / new readings of the theories of myth / myth in contemporary society: environment, social disparities, migration / myth in psychology, art, literature, spirituality / mythical figures and archetypes in contemporary culture. A particularly interesting question is: what role does myth play in the time of dizzying scientific and technological development and the Anthropocene? These topics, of course, do not exhaust the problem of myth and identity, so we leave the series open.
We invite fellow researchers in the fields of anthropology, cultural studies, history of religions, history of art, philosophy, psychology, and related fields, with different theoretical and methodological approaches, and we especially welcome interdisciplinary, comparative, cross-cultural and intertemporal perspectives.
